A state inmate who walked off a job site in Montgomery on Monday is back in custody. Elmore County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended 34-year-old Michael Deshaun McLeod at about 9 p.m. in Wetumpka after a tip led them to a gas station where McLeod surrendered without incident.    

McLeod was assigned to the Frank Lee Work Release Center in Deatsville and serving a 20-year sentence on a 2014 conviction for discharging a gun inside an occupied vehicle or dwelling in Montgomery County.
