Escaped Texas Inmate Captured

Published December 8, 2009

A convicted sex offender who escaped from a state prison has been caught in Houston after a week on the run.

Alfredo Perez of the federal Marshals Service says a tip led to the capture of the escapee, Arcade J. Comeaux Jr.

Comeaux was in a wheelchair Nov. 30 when he pulled a gun on two guards during a transfer from a unit in Huntsville to one in Beaumont. The guards were released after being forced to drive to the Baytown area. Mr. Comeaux was serving life in prison for aggravated sexual assault.
