June 6, 2022 (Lincoln, Neb.) – The Lincoln Police Department has arrested an inmate who failed to return last week to the Community Corrections Center – Lincoln (CCC-L). James Crihfield (#213470) was taken into custody on June 5 and booked into the Lancaster County jail on new charges.

Crihfield was reported missing on Wednesday, June 1. He was on an approved visit to a local hospital, but did not return afterward.

Crihfield started his sentence on July 14, 2021. He was sentenced to three years and seven months on multiple charges of theft by deception and second degree forgery – all out of Lancaster County. He has a tentative release date of October 11, 2022.
