Fleeing Inmate Back in Custody
The Warrant Apprehension Unit of the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services today captured an inmate who fled a Baltimore halfway house in January.
Pedro Ayala, who was serving a sentence for unauthorized removal of property and second-degree assault, left the halfway house at 1702 St. Paul Street in Baltimore on January 11, 2019.
Warrant detectives relentlessly tracked Ayala from New Jersey, apprehending him in the Westport section of Baltimore. He is now incarcerated at the Maryland Reception Diagnostic and Classification Center in Baltimore and faces up to 10 more years in prison for escape.
Ayala was arrested and is back in custody with the Division of Correction. When he fled, he was still serving time for unauthorized Removal of Property and Second-Degree Assault.
