MOULTRIE — Law enforcement was looking Monday afternoon for a Colquitt County Jail trusty who apparently walked off his cleaning job earlier in the day.

He was awaiting trial in Colquitt County on probation and convicted felon in possession of a firearm charges. He also had been charged with child molestation in Thomas County in a case that has not been adjudicated.

“A roaming officer checked on him a littler after 2 and couldn’t find him,” sheriff’s Capt. Julius Cox said Monday afternoon. “Right now we feel like he got a ride out.”

Surrounding counties had been alerted to be watching for Waldon, who has family in Thomas County, Cox said.
