Fugitive Thug Captured!


(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Almost 13 years after escaping prison camp, a California inmate was finally caught in New York City last month.

According to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Eduardo Hernandez, the 42-year-old thug, was serving time for armed carjacking when he broke out of the Delta Conservation Camp before dawn on November 15, 2011.

Corrections officials stated that Hernandez was recaptured without incident in New York City on May 20 and will be sent back to California to resume his prison sentence.

While California officials did not provide more details about his arrest, an email to the New York Police Department (NYPD was not immediately returned on Sunday night.

The criminal began his 13-year sentence on August 4, 2005, and had served six years before his escape.

He and another inmate were last seen around 4:30 a.m. on November 15, 2011, at the minimum-security Delta Conservation Camp in Suisun City.

They were wearing orange blaze-colored jeans and shirts with “CDCR prisoner” on the back.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the thug who escaped with him is still on the run.

Moreover, the prison camp where Hernandez was serving time is operated jointly by the corrections department and the state’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

“The primary mission of the camp is to provide incarcerated fire crews for fire suppression in the Sonoma, Lake, Napa Unit and Solano County areas,” the state’s corrections department stated.

“However, crews can be dispatched throughout the state. In addition to fire suppression, incarcerated hand crews provide a workforce for conservation projects,” it added.

Additionally, corrections officials said that since 1977, 99% of inmates who “left an adult institution, camp, or community-based program without permission have been apprehended.”
