Authorities located an inmate today around 3:45 p.m. who walked away from a supervised off-site work crew near the ASPC-Safford sewage pond Wednesday before noon.

According to the Arizona Department of Corrections, Juan C. Nunley was hiding in an irrigation drain in an empty lot next to the Church St. storage facility.

Nunley returned to prison in 2014 after being convicted out of Pima County to serve 7 years for theft and trafficking in stolen property. 

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1.
