Escaped Virginia City Prisoner Found Near American Flats
Authorities say they've found an escaped prisoner out of Virginia City. Jeremy James Morales had been on the run since October 1st.
Storey County deputies say a resident driving an ATV on Monday found 38-year-old Jeremy James Morales and called them. Deputies later found Morales near the American Flats near the Storey/Lyon county lines.
They say Morales was hiding in some bushes, and was still wearing his jail clothes with duct-taped shoes. As a precaution he was checked out by medical staff and then taken to jail in Carson City.
Authorities say when a deputy was doing cell checks Jeremy James Morales locked the deputy in his cell and then escaped.
Morales was being held in the Storey County Jail after he pled guilty to sexual assault involving a minor.
Morales was scheduled to be sentenced to the Nevada Corrections Department earlier this month when he disappeared.
