A 35-year-old Toledo man convicted of bank robbery who fled a halfway house Sunday turned himself in to Toledo police yesterday.

Adams was completing an 84-month sentence when he left the halfway house.

Adams was being held at the Lucas County jail pending a ruling from the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which will determine how much time he will receive in the federal penitentiary system, authorities said.
