NEVADA, Iowa — A man wanted for failing to return to an Ames work release facility is now back behind bars.

An arrest warrant for Turner had been issued after he didn’t return to the Curt Forbes Work Facility on August 24th, following an authorized furlough.
Turner is serving a five-year sentence for third offense domestic abuse and second degree theft. He’s being held in Story County Jail.
