Holshouser was serving a period of confinement in response to a violation of his post-release supervision on a 2018 conviction of receiving a stolen vehicle.

He was scheduled to be released on Nov. 11, 2022.

Holshouser was found around five hours later on foot by the NCDPS Prison Emergency Response Team and surrendered without incident. He was then taken to a close custody facility.
