Escaped inmate from Theo Lacy Jail captured


Orange County deputies followed up on a tip indicating that Saith Na was in the Oceanside area. Investigators tracked the 26-year-old down at a motel in Oceanside at about 5:30 a.m. Saturday. Authorities say he was taken into custody without incident.

Na was discovered missing from the facility during a body count Friday morning. The jail was locked down and a perimeter was set up and searched.

He was originally booked into Orange County Jail on Aug. 26, 2012, by the Santa Ana Police Department for robbery, narcotics, weapons possession and criminal street terrorism.
