CLEVELAND, Ohio — The FOX 8 I-Team has learned the man who escaped from the Cuyahoga County Jail this week has been caught.
Ferdinand Torres-Vargas, 30, was put behind bars on charges including domestic violence.
The U.S. Marshals office said the suspect escaped Tuesday evening. Marshals tell the I-Team Torres-Vargas went to where he used to work in Brooklyn; they called Brooklyn police, and police called the Marshals. Brooklyn police took him into custody around noon Thursday.
The FOX 8 I-Team was the first to confirm the Cuyahoga County Jail was on lockdown Wednesday while corrections officers tried to find the suspect.
A $2,500 reward had been offered. US Marshal Pete Elliott says someone will get that money for the tip.
Torres-Vargas is in the sheriff’s custody.
