Inmate escapes, recaptured in 2 days

Posted: Thursday, November 17, 2005

Kenai police and state and local agencies spent Tuesday and Wednesday looking for a man temporary released from custody from Wildwood Pretrial Facility who took off. The Sterling man was captured Wednesday evening.

Barry G. Moore, 40, was released from Wildwood Pretrial at 1 p.m. Tuesday, after a court hearing held last week granted him a temporary release from custody, with conditions of release, according to Kenai Police Sgt. Gus Sandahl.

Sandahl said Moore initially was released unrestrained to an unidentified party to attend an appointment in Kenai but failed to return to Wildwood by the 3 p.m. Tuesday deadline.

However, Kenai police located Moore and apprehended him without incident at a Kenai residence Wednesday about 6:45 p.m. and took him back to Wildwood.

“This is not something that occurs on a daily basis,” Sandahl said.

Prior to Moore’s temporary release, he was lodged at Wildwood Pretrial for charged of felony driving under the influence and fourth-degree assault.
