Michael Jones was located Thursday afternoon in Madisonville. He was arrested and taken back to the Hamilton County Justice Center.


Police are looking for an inmate who was inadvertently released from the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Police say Michael Jones, 38, was admitted to the justice center on Oct. 3, 2008 on charges of disorderly conduct, obstruction of official business and an outstanding Mount Healthy Police warrant for TPO violation and criminal damaging.

He was released from the Justice Center on Oct. 21 at 7:08 p.m. when jail personnel inaccurately believed the holder had been lifted. Investigators say the Mount Healthy Police had followed established procedures and the holder was still in place, but Jones should not have been released.

Jones is described as a male black, 5-foot-7 and 185 pounds with medium complexion and black hair and brown eyes. His last known address is in Bramble Ave. in Cincinnati.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the Sheriff's Office at (513) 825-1500 or Crimestoppers at (513) 352-3040.
