Inmate walks away from transitional housing facility

MEDFORD, Ore. - A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a former inmate who walked away from a transitional housing before Thanksgiving.

Scott Bradley Wold, 37, got out of Columbia River Correctional Institution October 2, 2012, after completing a 180-day in-prison alternative incarceration program.

Inmates who successfully complete the 180-day in-prison program move into the community on transitional leave, according to the Department of Corrections. Inmates are still in the custody of the DOC during the transitional leave and are supervised in the community by parole officers for 90 days while practicing the skills and discipline learned in prison.

Wold entered the Jackson County Community Justice Transition Center after leaving prison. He checked out at 9:15 a.m. on November 20 and has not reported back, police said. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

He was originally convicted on charges of manufacturing marijuana, delivering MDMA near a school and a felony weapons charge.

Wold is 6-foot 3, 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Wold's whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1 or the Oregon State Police at 1-800-452-7888.
