Pine Creek Township, PA – A Brookville man has been captured after escaping during his work release program from the Jefferson County Jail.

33-year-old Christopher Noland had left his approved work release program on Wednesday, but he was later located by the DuBois City Police and State Police in DuBois.

Noland was taken into custody without incident and transported back to the Jefferson County Jail by Jefferson County Adult Probation.

Court documents show that Noland has a history of crimes in our area, including hitting a utility pole while DUI, scuffling with police while at the hospital, possessing weapons like brass knuckles and a handheld crossbow, and breaking into two homes in July 2020 while wielding a samurai sword.

Now new charges are pending for his recent escape.
