Escaped Calhoun County inmate apprehended

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — An inmate worker who walked away from the Calhoun County jail Saturday morning was caught in Lansing.

Edwin Lamarr Walker was assigned to a non-secure area of the facility at about 4:45 Saturday morning when he walked out through an emergency exit. The kitchen manager reported his absence a short time later.

Investigators say he fled in a stolen U-haul which had been left running outside a business in Emmett Township.

Walker was apprehended by Lansing police at about 9:45 Saturday morning after officers spotted the stolen vehicle. Police say Walker fled on foot, then fought with officers before being arrested.

Walker will now face additional charges in both Calhoun County and in Lansing.

Walker had been serving a one year sentence for drug charges.
