Inmate who was accidentally released in Kankakee County is now back in custody: sheriff

KANKAKEE, Ill. — A Kankakee County inmate who was accidentally released from jail Friday has been taken into custody in Chicago, officials said Saturday.

Anees Ahmed Usmani, 41, was released from the Jerome Combs Detention Center, 3050 S. Justice Way in Kankakee, about 4:30 p.m. Friday, according to the Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office. Usmani was accidentally released in the place of another inmate.

He has been held at the jail since December on drug-related offenses and was dropped off at a local business after getting a ride from another inmate released that day, the sheriff’s office said.
