Inmate caught hours after walking off work detail

A Rockcastle County jail inmate has been caught after walking away from a community service work detail Monday afternoon.

Kenneth Robert Lewis was working at the Garrard County Recycling Center while serving time for two controlled-substances charges when he walked off between 1:30 and 2 p.m., Lincoln County jailer David Gooch said.

Lewis was arrested by Rockcastle County sheriff's deputies at a relative's house Monday evening, Gooch said. He was returned to the Lincoln County jail about 9 p.m.
