Linn County Authorities Searching for Work Release Inmate

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) – Linn County authorities are asking for information on a work-release inmate who did not return to a Cedar Rapids facility following his work day.

The Iowa Department of Corrections says 25-year-old Vincent Connors did not report back Monday night to the Larry A. Nelson Residential Center. Connors has been at the work-release facility since mid-December. He was convicted and sentenced to up to 25 years in March 2011 of first-degree robbery in Linn County.

Authorities are asking anyone with information on Connors’ whereabouts to contact their local police.
