Missing State Inmate from Crittenden County Captured in Memphis

FEBRUARY 7, 2007 - Posted at 7:29 a.m. CST

 

BENTON, AR - A state prisons spokeswoman says authorities in Tennessee have caught an Arkansas work-release inmate who didn't return as scheduled from a weekend furlough.  Prisons spokeswoman Dina Tyler said 33-year-old Tommy D. Hollis was taken into custody about 8 p.m. last night by Shelby County (TN) sheriff's deputies.

Shelby County includes Memphis, just across the river from Crittenden County, Arkansas, which was Hollis's home, and where he had last been seen prior to his capture.

Tyler said Sunday, when Hollis didn't return from his furlough as scheduled, that he had been serving an eight-year sentence from Crittenden County, imposed in 2003.  She said he was convicted for manufacture, delivery and possession of a controlled substance.  He would have been eligible for parole on September 3.
