MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Corrections says a work-release inmate who walked away a week ago has been found in a shopping mall.

A spokesman says 41-year-old Michael Maurice Chiasson Jr., was apprehended without incident on Friday afternoon at the Mall of New Hampshire in Manchester. He was being taken back to the state prison in Concord to face escape charges.

Chiasson walked away from the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit in Manchester on July 7 after a corrections officer questioned him about unauthorized property in his possession.

He was sentenced on a felonious sexual assault charge. His maximum release date was in 2027.
