COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — An inmate who escaped from a work crew in South Carolina’s Anderson County in 1979 has been captured. South Carolina Department of Corrections spokeswoman Chrysti Shain says Jose Chico Romero, now 63, had an encounter with police in Dover, Delaware on Dec. 28 in which he presented a fake identification card. She said he was arrested, processed and released under the name Arnaldo Figueroa, but his fingerprints later came back with a match for Romero. WYFF-TV reports he was apprehended in Dover on New Year’s Day. Romero is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown, Delaware, on a fugitive warrant and has waived extradition.
