Missing inmates returned to custody

January 28, 2020 (Lincoln, Neb.) – An inmate who went missing from the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln (CCC-L) on January 17, 2020 has been arrested by the Norfolk Police Department. Jamie Bear #210013 was taken into custody at a residence early this morning. He is being held at the Madison County jail.

Bear failed to return to CCC-L on January 17 from his scheduled work assignment. He is serving a two-year sentence for charges out of Madison County that include possession of a controlled substance, unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle and obstruction of an officer. He has a tentative release date of April 28, 2020. 

In addition to Bear’s apprehension, an inmate who left the Community Corrections Center-Omaha (CCC-O) is also in custody. Sheldon Fils #76680 was arrested by the Council Bluffs Police Department on December 7, 2019. He left CCC-O on December 4, 2019.

Due to a re-calculation of his current sentence, Fils was discharged from the custody of NDCS. He is serving a jail sentence in Douglas County related to his recent escape.
