Mistakenly released inmate surrenders in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - A Clallam County Jail inmate who was mistakenly released Tuesday is back behind bars.

The 35-year-old Port Angeles man, Lavan A. Lukes, turned himself in Thursday at the Clallam County Courthouse.

Sheriff Bill Benedict told the Peninsula Daily News he was not considered dangerous.

Lukes was jailed last week in a domestic violence case arising from a child custody dispute. He was accidentally let out of jail in a paperwork mix-up after a court appearance.
