Man mistakenly released from jail captured

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago man serving a 12-year sentence at Stateville Correctional Center who was mistakenly released Monday from Cook County Jail has been captured in Kane County.

Cook County Sheriff's spokeswoman Cara Smith says 25-year-old Jeremiah Harris was captured Wednesday afternoon in Carpentersville without incident. Smith said investigators were given information that led them to Carpentersville.

Smith said Harris was being held at Cook County Jail awaiting trial in a 2008 murder case and for a possible probation violation in connection with a 2006 weapons case. Harris was found not guilty in the murder case and a judge terminated his probation in the weapons case.

Smith said the mistake was discovered Wednesday, when a judge alerted deputies to the error. It's the third such mistake at the jail this year.
