Canyon County sheriff's office recaptures inmate who walked away from minimum-security facility in July
A man who escaped from St. Anthony Work Camp five months ago is back in custody, according to Jeffrey Ray with the Idaho Department of Corrections.
"Acting on a tip, deputies from the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office found Tarango Deforest Padilla... at a home in Nampa on Saturday," said Ray. "Padilla will be transported to Fremont County where he faces possible charges related to his escape."
Padilla walked away from the minimum security facility on July 5. He was serving a seven to fifteen-year sentence for two counts of grand theft from Twin Falls County. Ray said that Padilla would have been eligible for parole in 2017.
"St. Anthony Work Camp is a 240-bed, male facility in the eastern Idaho town of St. Anthony. The work camp gives low-risk male offenders the opportunity to hold jobs so they can pay restitution to their victims, pay some the costs of their incarceration, and save money so they are financially prepared for their release back to the community," said Ray.
