Another Wash. State Jail Escapee Captured

December 8, 2005

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) _ Another of the nine inmates who escaped from a four-story jail using bed sheets tied into ropes has been caught, leaving just one of the men still at large.

Gianni Alaimo, 26, surrendered without incident Wednesday when officers surrounded a residence. Police said they were acting on a tip motivated by a $3,000 reward offered by community groups.

Alaimo was being held on assault charges at the time of the group’s escape from the Yakima County Jail in November.

The nine broke through a ceiling on the jail’s top floor, then reached the ground by the makeshift ropes. Five were captured immediately and two were caught the next day.
