Pima County jail inmate escapes 1 day after surrendering
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Pima County sheriff’s officials say an inmate has escaped from the county jail after turning himself in a day earlier.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department says 30-year-old Luis Moreno was last seen Friday afternoon running toward a wash near the Pima County Adult Detention Complex.
Investigators say Moreno fled through the back dock just outside a kitchen.
He was wearing a red shirt and red pants.
He is described as Hispanic, 6 feet, roughly 175 pounds with black hair in a buzz cut and brown eyes.
Deputies as well as Tucson police are conducting a search.
Moreno surrendered to the jail on Thursday on an outstanding DUI warrant. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
