2 Somerset County Men Sought After Removing Their Ankle Monitors
The Somerset County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help locating two men who removed the ankle monitors that are part of their house arrest.
Who Are Police Looking For?
Jacob G. Savage, 36, and Terry J. Nurmi, 46, were both part of a program through the Somerset County Community Corrections Program that requires some people with domestic violence related charges to wear ankle monitors. This month, both men removed their monitors and disappeared. Nurmi and Savage were last known to be living in Skowhegan.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Savage removed his monitor on April 11th and currently has an active arrest warrant for aggravated criminal mischief and violation of conditions of release.
Nurmi removed his ankle monitor on April 19th and his whereabouts are currently unknown. Numi has an active arrest warrant for aggravated criminal mischief and violations of conditions of release.
Anyone with information about either man's whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Somerset County Sheriff's Department's tip line at 207-474-0239 or regional dispatch at 207-474-0230.
What is the Home Release Monitoring Program?
The Somerset County Community Corrections Program's Home Release Monitoring Program aims to allow early release for some inmates and focuses on rehabilitation, reintegration, education, and employment. Some of the requirements for enrollment in the program include obtaining outside employment, and enrolling in education or counseling, as well as maintaining a stable residence. The offenders who are chosen for this program must have committed crimes that are nonviolent in nature and must have no significant criminal history.
