Tulia Escapee Recaptured

NewsChannel 10

Tulia, Texas - An escaped Swisher county jail inmate has been recaptured.

The Swisher County Sheriff's office says 27 year old Frankie Mancha Alvarez was captured by US marshals around noon Wednesday in Waco.

They say they are currently making arrangements to have Alvarez picked up and brought back to Tulia.

In May, Alvarez was collecting trash inside the jail when he asked for permission to take the bag of garbage outside...and never returned from the errand.

He was in jail on a parole violation and has a sexual assault charge pending.

Alvarez will be held in Tulia until a trial date is set.
