Police Hope 2nd Time Isn’t The Charm For Prison Escapee
DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – Police are looking for a man who they say escaped from the Wayne County Jail by impersonating another inmate set for release. Rocky Delgado Marquez, 34, slipped out of the jail on January 20.
Authorities say this is the second time Marquez has got out of jail by pretending to be someone else — in May, he escaped a Phoenix, Arizona jail by impersonating another inmate.
The U.S. Marshall tracked him down in the city’s west side earlier this month. 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. Marquez is considered armed and dangerous.
If you have any information about Marquez you are asked to contact the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department at (313) 224-2222.
