MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (WBZ-AM) -- A man who walked away from a Manchester work release facility has been taken into custody and returned to New Hampshire State Prison, the NH Department of Corrections said Wednesday.

Tyler Best, 39, left the correctional facility for work around 1 p.m. Tuesday, and then left that site without permission.

NHDOC officials said he was apprehended around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night.

Best was sentenced last year to 1.5-5 years on an armed robbery conviction.

The NHDOC said walking away from a work release facility can lead to an escape charge and up to 3.5-7 years in prison.
