L.A. jail escapee captured in Mountain View


MOUNTAIN Perspective – A minimum-security inmate who walked out of a L. a. County custody facility very last 7 days was observed and arrested in Mountain Watch late Sunday, according to state jail officials.

Jason Kohr, 36, was taken into custody all over eleven:35 p.m. close to Sun Mor and Eunice avenues, a half-mile east of Grant Highway, soon after he was reportedly spotted driving a stolen motor vehicle.

Brokers from the California Section of Corrections and Rehabilitation, who tracked Kohr for the Bay Area, employed a Taser to subdue the suspect immediately after he ditched the car or truck and briefly ran off, then fought with them, authorities explained.

Kohr was being held for the Bare minimum Support Facility in the California State Prison-Los Angeles County in Lancaster when he was found out missing during a head depend the night time of Oct. 28, according on the CDCR.

Kohr was serving a six-year jail term for auto theft, trying to evade a police officer when driving recklessly, and second-degree burglary.

He was scheduled to become introduced up coming July, but his escape will likely delay that. Mountain Watch police are also expected to recommend an area auto-theft demand due to the stolen auto he was purportedly driving before he was caught Sunday.
