The man who escaped Mule Creek State Prison, Captured in Merced

A minimum-security inmate who walked away from Mule Creek State Prison in Ione California on February 7, 2019, was apprehended this evening in Merced.

At around 10:05 p.m., inmate Zechariah Lee was taken into custody by the Merced County Sheriff’s Department, the Merced Police Department, and CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety, Special Service Unit agents at a gas station located at the intersections of R Street and Olive Avenue.

Lee initially attempted to flee, but was quickly arrested. Lee was found missing at 9:24 p.m. on Thursday night after an inmate count at Mule Creek State Prison. He was received by CDCR in June 2017 out of Sacramento County with a three-year sentence for the first-degree robbery.

Lee will be transported to Valley State Prison, and his case will be referred to the Amador County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of escape charges.
