San Joaquin County Sheriffs Searching for Escaped Inmate

SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY — San Joaquin County sheriffs are searching for an inmate after he escaped from a work crew around 8:08 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Juan Carlos Hernandez, 30, escaped from work camp while working at the ACE Train Yard in the area of West Lane and East Alpine Avenue.

Hernandez was arrested on May 23 for exhibiting a deadly weapon other than a firearm, battery, theft, false identification to a peace officer, terrorist threats, and failure to appear.

A spokesperson with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office says Hernandez was due to be released in just under two weeks, but he escaped instead.
