Washoe Jail Escapee Captured

By  | 

A Reno man is headed back to the Washoe County jail after escaping from there a week ago.

Police found a stolen car and arrested Anthony Dewayne Tyler, 18, at a Reno apartment Thursday morning.

Tyler was awaiting sentencing on a burglary charge when he cut through a fence at the jail workshop last Thursday. He now also faces charges of escape and suspicion of motor vehicle theft.
