UPDATE: Inmate Captured After Escape From State Prison Camp

SUSANVILLE (CBS13) — A minimum security inmate who escaped on Tuesday morning from Ishi Conservation Camp, which is located just outside Paynes Creek in Tehama County, was taken back into custody about 10 hours later.

California Department of Corrections and Rehabilation (CDCR) staff and local law enforcement officers captured 31-year-old Arthur Turner at about 7:35 p.m. just outside the camp. Turner was medically cleared and booked without incident into the Tehama County Jail.

The matter will be referred to the Tehama County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

Turner was committed on Feb. 28, 2003, from Stanislaus County for robbery. He was scheduled to be paroled in April 2014.

He was last seen at the camp at about 9:45 on Tuesday morning.
