Escapee from Merced jail caught in Winton

Merced County sheriff's officials Saturday afternoon found a man hiding in a closet three days after he escaped from jail through a hole in a bathroom ceiling. Adrian Hicks, 39, of Merced, said he escaped because he thought it was unfair that a judge extended his jail time for failing to turn himself in to serve his initial jail sentence of three years, said sheriff's spokesman deputy Tom MacKenzie. The Sheriff's Tactical and Reconnaissance Team had been working nonstop, tracking and following leads since Hicks escaped early Wednesday.
