GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A Garfield County inmate is back in custody, after being on the loose for under six hours.

Authorities said at around 11:00 in the evening, Armando Jose Mayo, 19, escaped from the Garfield County Jail. Those with the Garfield County Sheriff's Office said he apparently made it out of the jail because of a "release error," by committing identity theft and criminal impersonation.

He was found at about 4:40 a.m. on January 23.

Mayo was being held on a failure to comply/failure to pay warrant out of Grand Junction.

He will now face additional charges stemming from his escape.
