An escaped Hall County inmate was recaptured in Buford on Friday afternoon, Jan. 20 after he walked away from a work release detail in December.
Cedric Demitri Rogers, 45, of Flowery Branch had been wanted by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office since Dec. 22, 2022, after he walked away from his work release assignment at the Hall County Animal Shelter off of Barber Road.
Shortly after he walked away from the Hall County Animal Shelter, Rogers took off his ankle monitor. Authorities had received a tip that he was seen near the Hardee’s at the corner of Buford Highway and Buford Drive in Buford not too long after he escaped custody.
The Hall County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Warrants Service Unit located Rogers at an abandoned house on Talley Lane just off of Thompson Mill Road in Buford at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20. Rogers was taken into custody without incident.
Rogers faces new felony warrants for escape and interference with government property stemming from his escape from work release detail.
