California State Prison-Sacramento Minimum Security Escapee Captured

An escaped inmate from California State Prison Sacramento has been captured.

Zachary Dickens, who was discovered missing from the Minimum Support Facility on July 15, 2010, was captured in Sacramento County by the Special Service Unit at approximately 5:20 PM and he surrendered with no resistance.

California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation special agents took custody of Dickens and will be transporting him back to California State Prison Sacramento.

Dickens, 27, was received from Sacramento County on March 18, 2010, and was serving a four year sentence for Corporal Injury to a Spouse. He was scheduled for release December 22, 2011.

California State Prison-Sacramento is a multi-mission institution that houses more than 3,100 inmates and employs nearly 1,700 people. Opened in 1986, the institution houses maximum-security inmates serving long sentences and those who have proved to be management problems at other institutions. The institution also serves as a medical hub for Northern California. The institution has minimum supervision inmates, like Dickens, outside the prison’s perimeter to assist with maintenance and other tasks to support the operation of the prison.
