The offender was participating in the Extending the Limits of Confinement initiative.
McLelland is an American Indian male who stands 5’11” tall and weighs 222 lbs. McLelland was serving an active sentence for possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule II controlled substance.
McLelland had a projected release date of Sept. 5, 2021.
McLelland has a tattoo on his right arm (smoking joint, 110% thug and ”Lumbee”); and he also has a tattoo on his stomach that says Lumbee.
Probation/parole officers from Community Corrections are currently searching for McLelland. An escape warrant is being sought.
The Extending the Limits of Confinement program allows certain inmates to serve the remainder of their prison sentence at home or in transitional housing. The program is not an early release or commutation.
Participants are still considered incarcerated and are supervised by probation/parole officers from Community Corrections. Violating the terms of the program can result in the offender being returned to a correctional facility.
