A Las Vegas man sought by police for nearly two days is now back in custody, police announced Monday.

According to New Mexico State Police, 32-year-old Felix E. Romero escaped from the San Miguel County Detention Center’s reintegration facility on Saturday afternoon by breaking a window and walking away.

NMSP responded to the facility around 1 p.m. Saturday, after jail staff reported the escape. Jail staff reported that Romero left the facility wearing a T-shirt and sweatpants, but they were not sure which direction Romero went after exiting the facility.
