Inmate escapes from work release facility


OTTUMWA (KWWL) -- The Iowa Department of Corrections is reporting an inmate has escaped from a residential work release facility.

29 year-old Robert Thomas Andrews was granted work release in November.

He was allowed to leave the Ottumwa facility Friday to look for work, and never returned.

Andrews served more than eleven years in prison for attempted murder, escape, and assault on a peace officer.
