A young prisoner who was driven away from a work project by accomplices on Tuesday was taken back into custody early this morning in Sacramento.
Angel Iniquez, 19, was driven from a roadside clean-up project about 11 a.m. Tuesday in Sutter Creek, Amador County, by two men. California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officers were distracted at the time by another prisoner who needed medical attention.
Law enforcement immediately began looking for Iniquez. At about 2 a.m. today he was found in a home in the 2400 block of Connie Drive in Sacramento.
The U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Iniquez and returned him to the Department of Corrections.
The department said Pine Grove Conservation Camp prisoners perform 15-20 community service projects a week and handle support wildland fire crews throughout the state.
