Morgan county inmate found

A missing Morgan County inmate has been found. The Morgan County Sheriff says a tip led police to a house on the north side of Martinsville Wednesday afternoon. James R. Baker was taken into custody without incident. Baker didn’t return after his shift at a work-release program Tuesday morning. He is one of four inmates who work overnight at a Mooresville business. They got off work around 3 a.m. One of the inmates drove all four back to the facility to check back in, but Baker never did. Baker was serving time for a probation violation, but has previous arrests for battery and residential entry.
