PADUCAH, Ky. (KBSI) – A McCracken County Jail inmate who walked away from a work detail in April was arrested Wednesday, July 20.

Clifton Crumble, 29, of Monroe Street was arrested on a warrant charging him with second-degree escape.

Paducah Police Officer Noah Willet stopped Crumble just around 12:42 a.m. on Wednesday, July 20 at 25th Street and Laclede Avenue because the bicycle Crumble was riding had improper equipment.

Police say Crumble refused to provide his name, but was identified by officers who know him. He also was in possession of bank cards bearing his name. A computer check confirmed Crumble was charged in a warrant with second-degree escape after he walked away from a work release detail at Mount Kenton Cemetery on Lone Oak Road on April 7.

Crumble was arrested and booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
