An arrest warrant has been issued for Shane Habermann, an inmate at the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center who failed to return from work release on Oct. 21.

Authorities were immediately notified and law enforcement have continued to actively search for Habermann, 40.

"Mr. Habermann was sentenced to our facility for possession of a controlled substance. His judgment stated he would have access to drug and alcohol treatment and the ability to apply for work release. Mr. Habermann was granted work release status and secured employment," said Adam Jangula, SWMCCC deputy operations administrator. "We at SWMCCC encourage Mr. Habermann to return to the facility and turn himself in."

Criminal records indicate Habermann has a history of escape, with a previous escape recorded in 2015 while serving a sentence for theft of property and ingesting a controlled substance. Once apprehended, Habermann may face additional felony charges in connection with this most recent escape.

Court documents list a Dickinson address as Habermann's residence, though he may have left the area. He is 5 foot 8 inches tall, weighs 160 pounds, has distinct tattoos, brown hair and hazel eyes.
