Las Vegas Police Caught Inmate Who Escaped From Jail While Serving Life For Fatal Bombing


Las Vegas police have apprehended a man who escaped from prison earlier this week while serving a life sentence for a fatal 2007 explosion outside a Las Strip resort Vegas.

Porfirio Duarte-Herrera, 42, was taken into custody by patrol officers “without incident,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement. Tweeter around 10:30 p.m. local time Wednesday (1:30 a.m. ET Thursday.)

It is not yet clear what led to the arrest or how authorities tracked down Duarte-Herrera, who had been on the run since at least Tuesday. The LVMPD did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Duarte-Herrera escaped from the Southern Desert Correctional Facility in Indian Springs and was discovered during the 7 a.m. count Tuesday, according to the Nevada Department of Corrections.

Search teams were looking for the escaped convict, who the department described as a “medium-security inmate,” and a repossession warrant was issued for his capture.

Las Vegas police announced just over two hours before Duarte-Herrera’s arrest that federal authorities were offering a combined reward of $30,000 for information leading to his capture. They had warned anyone who spotted him not to approach the escaped inmate and to call 911 immediately.

Earlier this week, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak said in a statement that his office learned on Tuesday that the inmate had been missing since “early weekend,” as he called the incident “ unacceptable”. launch a full investigation into what happened.

Duarte-Herrera, who arrived at the corrections department in February 2010 from Clark County, was serving a life sentence for murder with the use of a deadly weapon.

He and Omar Rueda-Denvers were convicted of planting a pipe bomb that killed hot dog vendor Willebaldo Dorantes Antonio in a Luxor hotel-casino parking lot in 2007.

Prosecutors had said the motive was revenge against Dorantes Antonio, 24, who was dating Rueda-Denvers’ ex-girlfriend.

Rueda-Denvers, 47, remains behind bars in a separate state prison, according to corrections department records.
