MANCHESTER, N.H. — Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, are still looking for one work-release inmate after a second missing one returned to his transitional housing unit.

A Department of Corrections spokesman says 55-year-old Isthmian Aaron Smith, formerly of Enfield, New Hampshire, left his job and didn’t return to the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit at first on Monday. He eventually returned at 3 p.m. and was taken to state prison in Concord.

He is serving multiple sentences on theft, operating after being deemed a habitual offender, receiving stolen property, and heroin possession.

On Friday, 41-year-old Michael Maurice Chiasson Jr., formerly of Concord, walked away from Calumet after a corrections officer questioned him about unauthorized property in his possession.

He was sentenced on a felonious sexual assault charge. His maximum release date is in 2027.
