An escaped inmate was arrested in Tuolumne County Friday afternoon.

Daniel Lucas Salazar escaped from North Kern State Prison in Delano on November 3.

The 31-year-old was found three weeks later inside a tent at a homeless camp near Highway 108 in Sonora.

Salazar was taken into custody thanks to help from the Correctional Safety Special Service Unity, Merced County Gang Task Force, Sonora Police Department, and the Tuolumna County Sheriff's Office.
