ANNANDALE, N.J. (AP) — One of the two inmates who escaped from a youth detention facility in western New Jersey last weekend has been captured.
State Corrections Department Spokesman Matt Schuman says 21-year-old Corey Agostarola was taken into custody around 7 p.m. Friday in Pine Hill.
Schuman said Saturday that “detective work” by state authorities led to the capture. But he declined to provide further details on how or where Agostarola was found.
Agostarola and another inmate, 23-year-old Michael Bentley, were discovered missing from the Mountainview Youth Correctional Facility in Annandale on Sunday night.
Bentley remained on the lam as of late Saturday morning.
Agostarola was in custody on burglary and weapons charges, while Bentley was being held on theft and burglary charges.
