Authorities are searching for a work-release inmate who escaped Friday night in a bagel truck.
Multiple media outlets say that Roderick Lee Baldwin, 45, was working at a bagel shop when he took off. North Carolina Department of Corrections spokesman Keith Acree says Baldwin stole $400 and a
white van with Alpine Bagel written on the side.
Baldwin was serving a maximum 15-year sentence as a convicted habitual felon at the Orange Correctional Center. He was scheduled for release in 2011.
Corrections records say Baldwin escaped custody in 1989 when he was serving 5 years for breaking-and-entering and fraud convictions.
