Second Inmate Recaptured After ABQ Escape

Authorities have now recaptured both Bernalillo County jail inmates who escaped from a transport van in Albuquerque.

Sheriff's Sgt. Aaron Williamson says 37-year-old Brandon Davis surrendered peacefully to deputies after he was located Tuesday.

The other escapee, 20-year-old Andreas Macias, was found hiding at his home in Albuquerque Monday night.

Macias and Davis escaped Monday while en route from court to the jail.

They escaped when the van stopped at a hospital to pick up an inmate who was being discharged and taken back to the jail.

Authorities say Macias and Davis kicked open the van's back door and escaped on foot.
