Released Inmate Found in Riverton
Riverton Police say that a Casper man who was accidentally released from the state penitentiary in Torrington last week was found in Riverton and taken back into custody today.
Arthur Penrod was released by mistake last Tuesday reportedly because of missing paperwork.
Captain Eric Murphy says Riverton law enforcement officials found Penrod in Riverton shortly after noon today. Murphy says he was located at his girlfriend's house and was taken into custody without incident.
Penrod completed a four year sentence for burglary, but was supposed to serve another four to seven year sentence in connection with his aiding of an assault in Casper one year ago.
