Escaped inmate recaptured in Hamilton

From the Trentonian's own Brian Dzenis:
HAMILTON — Eloy Sanchez, who escaped from the Jones Farm Correctional Facility in Ewing this week, was recaptured by corrections officials on Tuesday.
At 3:45 p.m. Sanchez, 27, was found by the Department of Corrections’ Special Investigations Unit in Hamilton, spokeswoman Deidre Fedkenheuer said. Corrections officials have not released the exact circumstances of Sanchez’ capture or what led them to Hamilton.
Sanchez’ escape was discovered by Jones Farm officials when he was missing at the 6:30 p.m. roll call. Jones Farm is considered to be a minimum security facility where inmates are often allowed to go outside on the grounds to do farm work. He was serving a one-year sentence on a robbery conviction at the time of his escape. Spokesman Matt Schuman said Sanchez was seven months from parole when he escaped. As of his capture, he will be facing another three to five years in a more secure prison.
Sanchez is currently being held at Trenton State Prison.
