Texas criminal captured following prison escape

A Texas criminal serving a 20-year sentence for crimes like burglary and robbery was captured three miles from a prison in Angleton after escaping last night.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said a routine count was being conducted at midnight on Sunday when security guards of the Clemens Unit trusty camp discovered 33-year-old Kidanny Robles was unaccounted for.

A brief investigation revealed Robles walked away from the facility, which was a housing location outside the main prison for inmates requiring a lower level of supervision.

Local and state law enforcement officials, along with the Office for the Inspector General, conducted a search for Robles and located him nearly 10 hours after announcing he had gone missing, three miles from the prison facility.
