TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) – Authorities say a man who escaped from a state correctional facility in Tucson in December is back in custody.
The U.S. Marshals Service says 35-year-old Anthony Ramirez was arrested Thursday morning by members of a multi-agency task force.
According to the Marshals Service, Ramirez had remained in the Tucson area after escaping from the Southern Regional Community Corrections Center.
The service says Ramirez was arrested without incident after being spotted driving a vehicle in the area of River Road and Dodge Boulevard with his girlfriend, 34-year-old Jamie Linn Wolslagel.
The Marshals Service says she’s been arrested on suspicion of hindering prosecution.
