Bailey Scruggs #86344 left after taking out the garbage, one of his assigned duties at the facility. He removed the electronic monitoring device he was wearing, which was found nearby. 

Scruggs started serving his sentence on September 6, 2017. He is serving five to eight years on charges out of Douglas County that include burglary and tampering with a juror/witness/information. He has a tentative release date of September 6, 2021.
