An 18-year-old who escaped the District’s secure facility for juveniles last month was recaptured Monday, The Washington Times has learned.
Treyvon Cortez Carey beat a corrections officer to escape from the New Beginnings Youth Development Center in Laurel on April 18.
Officials say Carey, a ward of the District’s Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services, used a ladder to hop the razor-wire fence and drove off in the officer’s car, ditching it near Barry Farm in Southeast.
Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump confirmed that Carey was back in custody.
“We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Metropolitan Police Department for the safe return of this youth.” acting DYRS Director Neil Stanley said.
No further details were immediately available.
