Drug suspect mistakenly released from jail is captured
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) – The U.S. Marshals Service says a man who was mistakenly released from a Tennessee jail in Hamilton County has been taken back into custody.
According to a release from the Marshals, Brenen Andrew Murphy was being detained on federal drug charges at the Silverdale Correctional Facility in Hamilton County. He was released in error early Sunday morning from the facility, which is operated by Corrections Corporation of America, a private prison firm. It wasn’t clear how he came to be released from the facility.
The Marshals said in a statement on Monday that Murphy had been found and arrested without incident.
