An inmate who'd been given permission to leave the state's Community Corrections Center-Lincoln so he could find a job has not returned.
The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services says Lincoln police were notified that Anthony Durand had not returned by 5 p.m. Monday.
The department also says Durand managed to remove the monitoring device he was wearing.
A prisons spokeswoman said Tuesday morning that she had no new information about Durand.
Durand started serving his three-year prison sentence on Sept. 18 last year. He'd been charged with methamphetamine possession, theft and operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest.
