OKANOGAN Two local teens were arrested Monday following a Brewster's boys escape from the juvenile detention center.
Luis J. Martinez-Aparicio, 15, of Brewster, and Angelica M. Evaristo, 16, of Okanogan, were arrested in connection with the escape.
“Martinez-Aparicio was being led to the court in the juvenile center when he pulled away from one of the juvenile staff, before he could handcuff him,” Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said of the Monday break-out. “Martinez-Aparicio ran down the stairs and was able to exit the building.”
Deputies found him hiding in the backseat of a Chevrolet Tahoe parked at an area motel, the sheriff said.
He had been incarcerated at Okanogan County Juvenile Detention for a previous crime, court records show.
Authorities determined the owner of the vehicle didn't know the escaped teen was hiding in her vehicle, Roger said. But the owner's daughter, Evaristo, did.
Evaristo, was arrested for letting Martinez-Aparicio hide in her vehicle, the sheriff said.
She is facing a potential charge of second-degree rendering criminal assistance, the sheriff said.
