Midland County Fugitive Captured in Dallas

DALLAS - The man who escaped from the Midland County Jail last week is back behind bars after being captured in Dallas on Wednesday night.

Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter tells NewsWest 9, Fabian Nava was found in the attic of an old apartment in Dallas and was brought in without any injury.

As you may recall, Nava escaped last Friday when jailers and working inmates were passing out food trays. That's when Nava managed to avoid detection and escaped over a fence while a jailer was distracted.

We're told that Nava will be arraigned in court on Thursday morning in Dallas before being brought back to Midland.
