A state prison escapee was arrested in Fairfax, Virginia on Friday after 12 years on the run.

Carolyn Macy escaped from the Central City Community Center in Los Angeles on Jan. 7, 2000. She was serving time for grand theft of an employer exceeding $400 and defrauding with the use of an access card.

Macy was arrested in Fairfax, Virginia after a California Department of Corrections of Rehabilitation special agent developed a new lead with the help of a parole agent.

According to authorities, additional criminal charges might be filed. Macy was allegedly still involved in identity theft.
