    Officials say an inmate who hopped out of his second-floor window at the Cumberland County Community Corrections Center is back in custody.

    The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department said 44-year-old Joseph Buzzell, of Windham, was seen leaving the corrections facility in a woman's car Saturday night. He was located in Biddeford at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday and was returned to the jail.

    Officials say Buzzell was due to be released in December after serving a sentence for a probation violation following a conviction for robbery and OUI.

    An investigation determined he slipped out of his assigned room even though he was not authorized to leave the property. Additional charges are expected.
