Escapee Found in Glasgow

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office STOP team was conducting a drug investigation Wednesday in the eastern part of Kanawha County, and while they were investigating, learned that an escapee was staying on 3rd avenue in Glasgow. He was identified as Kevin Dale Burford and he was currently in NCIC. The Sheriff's office says Burford escaped from work release approximately 1 month ago and had apparently been staying in the Glasgow area during this time. Officers found Burford attempting to hide at the home in Glasgow where he had been staying, and he was taken into custody without incident. Burford was still wearing his department of corrections T-shirt with his name and department of corrections number on it when he was arrested.
