MCCC searching for missing offender

Robert D. Barron, 30, of Camden

Authorities in Dover say they are searching for an inmate, who did not return on an approved pass.

The Morris Community Correctional Center, in Dover, says that 30-year-old Robert Barron, has willfully failed to return on an approved job seeking pass.

Barron is described by law enforcement as a male, standing 5'04", weighing 145 pounds, with brown hair, and brown eyes. His last known address is reported as being in Camden, Delaware. He is also listed to have a tattoo on his right arm.

Officials say that Barron's location is unknown, and unauthorized at this time, so a warrant for escape and conviction has been issued. According to the report, Barron's current offense is violation of probation for theft of a motor vehicle.

It is important to keep in mind that Community Corrections Centers are Level 4 facilities, where the Department of Correction manages offenders who are transitioning back into the community. So, these centers are not secured like Level 5 prisons, meaning offenders are permitted to the leave the facility to go to work, seek jobs or attend approved treatment sessions.
