Jail Escapee Captured

Truth or Consequences – Authorities say they have apprehended a jail inmate who had escaped from the Sierra County Detention Facility in Truth or Consequences.

Authorities say 22-year-old Michael Todd escaped Tuesday afternoon and his orange jumpsuit was found a short time later lying on the ground behind a clothing store.

Todd was captured late Thursday afternoon at a store in Dona Ana County. He had been in the detention facility since last June on charges of car theft and driving under the influence.
