~ DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have captured an Iowa inmate accused of walking away from a work release center.
The U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release Monday that 25-year-old Derrick Dejuan Hoover was arrested Thursday after Des Moines police located him during a traffic stop.
Authorities say Hoover cut off his electronic monitoring device and walked away from the Fort Des Moines Work Release Center on Jan. 7. He had been ordered to live at the center as a condition of release for federal convictions.
Hoover faces a federal charge of violating the conditions of his release. He also faces charges of giving a false name and driving without a license. Court records do not list an attorney.
