It Took Cops Five Days To Realize A Man Escaped From Jail

It Took Cops Five Days To Realize A Man Escaped From Jail
World

A man escaped from prison for the second time in less than a year, and this time, it took guards five days to realize that he was missing.

Rocky Marquez, 34, is at large after slipping out of custody at Wayne County Jail in Phoenix on January 20th, something guards didn’t realize he had done until five days later.

How the hell did Marquez get free again? He impersonated another inmate who was set for release.

This is the second time he has pulled this trick, as he escaped jail in May by pretending to be another inmate.


The U.S. Marshall tracked him down earlier this month and arrested him. Officials say Marquez had a loaded AK-47 near him when he was arrested.


He was being held at the Wayne County Jail awaiting extradition back to Phoenix when he escaped again on Sunday.

Marquez originally was arrested in September 2010 on suspicion of perjury, influencing a witness, forgery, felony criminal damage, misconduct involving weapons, driving under the influence, failure to stop and misdemeanor criminal damage. 

A statement from the U.S. Marshall’s office reports “Marquez should be considered armed and dangerous.”
