Viewer turns in wanted man

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A man wanted for slipping away from Moultrie Police is in jail thanks to a WALB viewer.

 

 

We showed you 42-year old Oren Workman's picture Monday night.

 

Moultrie Police arrested him for breaking into Stone's Hardware on Christmas Day.

While detectives were questioning him,  they left him alone in an interrogation room, and he escaped.

After we put him on WALB News 10, a viewer called police and told them they could find him at a house on Hutchinson Drive.

He's charged with burglary and escape.
