2 Inmates Escape from County Jail, Manhunt Underway
Two inmates are missing from the North County Correctional Facility in Castaic, according to LA Now. The 24-year-old men, both from Van Nuys, may have made their escape sometime after 1 a.m. while they were working on the loading dock for the kitchen. They were determined to be missing after a 3:15 a.m. head count. Winder Barrios and Jose Aldana were arrested on April 2 in an armed robbery case. The pair were due in court today, according to a live report on KTLA, which has led authorities to believe the escape was planned. A large-scale search is underway in the Castaic area.
