A man who walked away from a prison work camp five months ago has been arrested.
A tip led Canyon County sheriff's deputies to arrest Tarango Deforest Padilla, 39, at a home in Nampa in Saturday, the Idaho Department of Correction announced Monday.
Padilla will be transported to Fremont County to face charges related to the escape. Padilla walked away from the minimum security St. Anthony Work Camp, northeast of Idaho Falls, on July 5. He was serving a 7- to 15-year sentence for grand theft in Twin Falls County and was not eligible for release until 2017.
The work camp is a 240-bed facility for men in St. Anthony that allows inmates to hold jobs while serving their prison sentences.
