Inmate Who Escaped From Julian Found in Tijuana

Officers caught a fugitive in Tijuana Saturday after the man escaped from a Julian prison camp nearly two months ago.

Baja California State Police apprehended Jesse Lozano, Sr. with the assistance of US Marshals and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department around 8 p.m.

Officials said Lozano gave up without a fight. He will be booked into San Diego Central Jail. 

Lozano walked away from a CAL Fire Conservation Camp inmate program on June 15.

After several weeks of surveillance and interviews, evidence led detectives to Tijuana.

Lozano was originally arrested in 2014 on drug charges and sentenced to three years in prison.
