Lincoln inmate disappears after seeking job
LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - An inmate at Community Corrections Center – Lincoln failed to return Wednesday after leaving the facility to seek employment in downtown Lincoln.
The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services said Wednesday that Raymond Jimenez was wearing an electronic monitoring device, but that it was recovered at 7th and B streets in Lincoln.
Jimenez is described as a 39-year-old Hispanic man, 6′, 215 lbs., bald, and with brown eyes. He began serving time June 15, 2020, after being sentenced to four to 6.5 years for crimes in Douglas County.
He was convicted of operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest during a May 2019 incident where he fled police, ran multiple stop signs, and threw a gun out of his vehicle. He was also convicted of possessing a deadly weapon by a prohibited person.
At the time of his disappearance, he was tentatively set to be released Aug. 10, 2022, and had a parole hearing scheduled next month.
Anyone who knows where he is should contact local authorities or the Nebraska State Patrol. CCC-L is one of two community custody facilities — the lowest custody level and the least-restrictive facilities — operated by the state. Inmates at such facilities are allowed to participate in jobs, education, and religious services with approval and without direct supervision.
