Cedar Creek Corrections Center inmate Chad Michael Ramsey didn’t get far after he escaped from a work crew Monday afternoon, according to the state Department of Corrections.
Ramsey, 45, escaped from the Littlerock-based corrections center about 2:50 p.m. Monday and was found 12 hours later in Capitol Forest. Once apprehended, he was transferred to the Washington Corrections Center in Shelton.
