Magnolia man sought after failing to return

Glen Allen

DOVER — A 27-year-old Magnolia man failed to Morris Community Correctional Center from an approved work pass Wednesday and was sought, the Delaware Department of Correction said.

Glen Allen’s whereabouts were unknown and unauthorized, according to the DOC and a warrant for escape after conviction was issued.
Allen was described as a 5-foot-8, 185-pound white male with blue eyes and blond or strawberry hair, with tattoos on his right arm, right forearm and chest. His initial offenses were theft and criminal mischief.

The DOC asked anyone with information to call (800) 542-9524 or their local police department.

Community Corrections Centers are Level 4 facilities where the DOC manages offenders who are transitioning back into the community. These centers are not secured like Level 5 prisons, as offenders are permitted to the leave the facility to go to work, seek jobs, or attend approved treatment sessions.
