ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - Authorities in Douglas County, Ore., say they arrested a man who escaped from a California prison.
A sheriff's office spokesman says 31-year-old Brian Delsie of Stockton, Calif., was taken into custody Thursday night after a deputy in the Oregon town of Oakland discovered a vehicle in a ditch.
The plates showed it had recently been reported stolen in Stockton.
The deputy canvassed the area and spotted Delsie, who allegedly had the keys to the stolen vehicle.
A records check revealed he was wanted as an escaped inmate from the San Joaquin Correctional Facility in California.
Delsie was booked into the county jail in Roseburg. He was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of burglary tools.
