CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A man who violated a jail furlough by walking away from a Zanesville hospital earlier this week is back in custody in the Guernsey County Jail.
Reports from the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office show that 42-year-old Steven Lenarz was on furlough from the County Jail, receiving treatment at Genesis-Good Samaritan Hospital in Zanesville, when he signed himself out and left the hospital grounds with an IV port still in his hand.
Shortly thereafter, Guernsey and Noble County Sheriff's deputies responded to a Pipa Road residence in Noble County, where they suspected Lenarz to be. They located the suspect inside and took him into custody before returning him to the Guernsey County Jail.
Lenarz was jailed on charges that included receiving stolen property and possession of drugs. When he failed to appear in Guernsey County Common Pleas Court in connection with these charges, his bond was revoked and he was arrested on Monday.
Lenarz will likely face additional charges related to his escape. He will next appear in court on August 26.
