Inmate Walks Away From Work Release Duty

Police in southern Kentucky are searching for an inmate who escaped while on work release.

48-year-old Gary Rollins walked away from his duty at the Pulaski County Animal Shelter on Wednesday afternoon.

He was serving an eight year sentence for Trafficking in a Controlled Substance and Bail Jumping. He was incarcerated at the Pulaski County Detention Center.

Police say someone saw Rollins leaving the Animal Shelter in a white car.

Rollins is described as a white male, 5'8" tall and weighs 170 pounds. At the time of the escape, he had long brown hair and a beard. Rollins has numerous tattoos on his arms and neck.

Burgess should be considered dangerous.

If you see him, call 911 or local police.

    When you are in jail you don't have any rights. you should lose them while you are in jail or prison. why didn't he have leg chains?

    So why is someone who was in jail and charged for bail jumping on work release? I understand that they have rights too but if you jump bail why are we letting them out? Do one time they will always do. Wake up our courts.
