A missing Lake County prisoner is back in custody after walking away last week from a minimum-security inmate firefighter camp, state corrections officials said.
Nicolas Dunning, 32, was found Saturday in Coachella, a Southern California city near Palm Springs. Riverside County gang detectives arrested him after developing information he was in the area, officials said.
Dunning was stopped in a vehicle at 1:15 a.m. and taken to Calipatria State Prison in nearby Imperial County. He was serving a five‑year sentence for assault with a deadly weapon following his arrest in Imperial County.
