UPDATE: Mugshot Released of Oak Glen Conservation Camp Escapee

Authorities Monday released a photo of the man who managed to scale a 15-foot razor-wire fence and elude police for approximately 13 hours.

We know now what the man who enjoyed 13 hours of freedom from a local jailing facility looks like, as his booking photo was released to Banning-Beaumont Patch on Monday.

The inmate, identified as 22-year-old Shaun Perkins, escaped the Oak Glen Conservation Camp in Yucaipa sometime between an 11 p.m. role call Saturday and midnight Sunday, according to California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation Sergeant Hector Morua, who works at the Oak Glen location.

Perkins-- who had only been at the Oak Glen facility for about two weeks-- was ultimately found approximately nine miles away near the Beaumont Sports Park and taken back into custody by 1:10 p.m. Sunday, according to Morua.

Perkins was serving out the remainder of his sentence at the facility where he was allowed to help out Cal Fire, but will now be housed at the Chino prison, according to Morua.  He had been set to go free in 2014, but that will likely change now.

The inmate had been serving a term for first degree burglary and purchase/receiving a stolen vehicle, the sergeant said.
