From the Associated Press:
CASTAIC — Authorities have recaptured two accused armed robbers who escaped from a Castaic jail.
Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore says the two men were caught about half a mile from the facility following a phone call from a local resident.
Jose Aldana and Winder Barrios were discovered missing from the North County Correctional Facility during a head count at 3:15 a.m. Wednesday.
Whitmore says the 24-year-olds apparently escaped about two hours earlier while working at a kitchen loading dock.
The men are accused of using a shotgun in a home invasion robbery in Encino last year and of robbing motorists in the Hollywood area.
