UPDATE: Booking Photo Released of Oak Glen Conservation Camp Escapee

Authorities Monday released a photo of the man who managed to scale a 15-foot razor-wire fence and elude police for approximately 13 hours.

A booking photo was released Monday of an inmate who escaped from the Oak Glen Conservation Camp late Saturday and was captured Sunday in Beaumont.

The inmate, identified as 22-year-old Shaun Perkins, escaped the minimum-security fire camp north of Yucaipa between an 11 p.m. role call and midnight Saturday, according to California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation Sergeant Hector Morua, who works at the Oak Glen location.

Perkins, who had been at the Oak Glen facility about two weeks, was found approximately nine miles away near the Beaumont Sports Park and taken back into custody by 1:10 p.m. Sunday, according to Morua.

Perkins was serving out the remainder of his sentence at the facility where he was allowed to help out Cal Fire, but will now be housed at the Chino prison, according to Morua.  He had been set to go free in 2014, but that will likely change now.

The inmate had been serving a term for first degree burglary and purchase/receiving a stolen vehicle, the sergeant said.

I certainly hope that the actions of this guy don't adversely affect those who have been afforded the opportunity to complete their sentences in a place where they can give back to the community they betrayed. One bad Apple?
