NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A inmate from the Norfolk City Jail walked away from his workforce job at the Scope Arena Saturday night.

Karen Pinkston with the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office says Tiquan Deron Eure turned himself back in to authorities on Sunday.

Eure is serving a two year sentence at the jail for credit card fraud and credit card theft, according to Pinkston.

Inmates in their workforce program are always nonviolent, low-risk inmates, said Pinkston. They’re often completing tasks such as cutting grass, shoveling snow or cleaning city facilities.
