Missing Lawrence County inmate arrested in Decatur

MOULTON — Authorities arrested a Lawrence County Jail inmate Sunday in Decatur after he failed to return to the jail Saturday from work-release.

Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell said he and Lt. Harold Knighten arrested Thomas Dewell Turner, 22, of Old Hillsboro Road, Moulton, at the Wimberly Apartments about 7:30 p.m. with assistance from Decatur police.

The sheriff said Turner’s mother picked him up at the jail about 8 a.m. Saturday.

“She had work for him to do around the house, and he was to visit sick relatives,” Mitchell said.

“His mother called us about mid-evening Saturday and told us that her son had run away from home and had not returned.”
