Authorities: Escaped Delaware inmate found in New Jersey

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say an inmate who escaped a Delaware corrections center on Christmas Day has been found in Montclair.

Delaware's Department of Correction announced Tuesday David Succarote, 31, was arrested back on Jan. 15 by police in Montclair.

Succarote has been extradited and was committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on an escape after conviction warrant.

According to officials, last month, Succarote went over the Plummer Community Corrections Center fence and fled.

The center manages inmates transitioning back into the community, and they can work, seek jobs or attend treatment sessions.

Department spokeswoman Jamie Young says Succarote, who was serving time for a probation violation and due to be released next summer, had escaped previously.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
