Authorities say they have captured a 42-year-old man who had escaped from a California prison 17 years ago.
Fontana police says Jose Ochoa was found late last week in Colton. A fingerprint check revealed Ochoa's identity. Police say Ochoa was convicted of possession of a controlled substance for sales and escaped from a state prison in Tulare County in 1996.
Ochoa was arrested and taken to the California Institute for Men in Chino.
