YUCAIPA, CA – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials announced today that inmate James S. Murray, 49, was taken back into custody late Sunday evening, approximately 24 hours after he was discovered missing from the minimum security Oak Glen Conservation Camp #35.
Murray turned himself into custody staff at the camp at approximately 9:00 pm, after apparently walking away from the camp some time after a routine security check at 8:20 pm Saturday night. Murray has been transported to the California Institution for Men in Chino.
Inmate Murray was committed to CDCR for a four year sentence, for 2nd Degree Burglary. He was scheduled to be released on August 28, 2015. This matter will be referred to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution of escape charges.
Since 1977, ninety-nine percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp, or community-based
program without permission have been apprehended.
