1 of 2 inmates missing from Manchester housing unit returns
MANCHESTER (AP) — Police in Manchester are still looking for one work-release inmate after a second missing one returned to his transitional housing unit.
A Department of Corrections spokesman says 55-year-old Isthmian Aaron Smith, formerly of Enfield, left his job and didn't return to the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit at first on Monday. He eventually returned at 3 p.m. and was taken to state prison in Concord.
He is serving multiple sentences on theft, operating after being deemed a habitual offender, receiving stolen property, and heroin possession.
On Friday, 41-year-old Michael Maurice Chiasson Jr., formerly of Concord, walked away from Calumet after a corrections officer questioned him about unauthorized property in his possession.
He was sentenced on a felonious sexual assault charge. His maximum release date is in 2027.
