Authorities increase reward for info on escaped inmate

Authorities increase reward for info on escaped inmate

The Connecticut Department of Correction reported that Mercado escaped from the Carl Robinson Correctional Institute on January 7.

Police in Georgia released more details about how they captured an escaped inmate from Enfield. The U.S. Marshals Service Violent Crimes Fugitive Task Force offered a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to Mercado's arrest. At that point, Canton police arrived and Mercado was "quickly taken into custody without further incident", Canton police said.

The 25-year-old prisoner who escaped from a CT prison earlier this month was captured in Georgia. They were able to confirm that Mercado had been there.

At about 4:15 p.m. the store clerk at the Chevron gas station called 911 to report Mercado was back in the store.

Mercado spent the night before at a facility in a Canton church, according to the post. The U.S. Marshals say the inmate may have fled CT and could be hiding in neighboring states, including the New York City metro area where a tip was generated.

Semple said there were two vehicles on the property that day - a state police van and a garbage truck - and investigators are looking into whether Mercado stowed away under one of the vehicles to escape.

Mercado will be placed in administrative segregation in Connecticut's Northern Correctional Institution.
