December 5, 2019 (Lincoln, Neb.) -- Authorities have been notified about an inmate missing from the Community Corrections Center-Omaha (CCC-O). Shelton Fils #76680 left the facility at around 6:00 p.m. on December 4, 2019. He removed the electronic monitoring device he was wearing, which was recovered in Carter Lake, IA.


CCC-O is one of two community custody facilities operated by NDCS. Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive facility. Inmates are allowed to participate in work opportunities, attend school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.


Fils is serving an eight year sentence out of Douglas County on weapons charges, resisting arrest and making terroristic threats. His sentence started on October 5, 2012. He is tentatively scheduled for release on January 9, 2020.  


Fils is a 48-year-old black male, 6’, 230 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.
