BANGOR  — A Maine sheriff’s Department says an inmate mistakenly released over the weekend in Bangor was recaptured within hours.

Penobscot County Sheriff Chief Deputy Troy Morton says 38-year-old Peter McCaffrey of Bangor was released Saturday after a mistake with his paperwork.

The Bangor Daily News says McCaffrey was found a short time later working at a Bangor business.

Morton says McCaffrey was not considered a high-risk inmate and there was no danger to the public so officials decided a public notice wasn’t needed.

McCaffrey is being held for lack of $3,000 cash bail while awaiting trial on burglary charges.
