Official release from the SAPD:

Two men who absconded from the Roy K. Robb Men’s Community Corrections Facility on North Highway 277 were apprehended last night with the help of a San Angelo Police Department Service Dog.

Just before 10:00 p.m. on June 10, 2019, San Angelo Police were dispatched to Howard College to assist Tom Green County Sheriff’s Deputies with locating two men that fled from the facility. 

Multiple Patrol Officer responded to the location along with K-9 Officer F. Flores and his partner, Police Service Dog Duke.  

Shortly after his deployment, Duke led officers to a bush located in front of the campus along US Highway 67.  Upon approach, Duke showed further interest in the bush and officers observed someone lying in the foliage.  The subject was issued multiple commands to show the officers his hands; however, the subject refused to cooperate.  Duke engaged and detained the subject, later identified as 19-year-old James Anderson, while the second concealed absconder, 24-year-old Jamaukas Guidry, was taken into custody without incident.

Anderson was treated at the scene for bite-related injuries and subsequently released to Tom Green County Sheriff officials.  

Anderson and Guidry have been charged with Unauthorized Absence from a Community Correction Facility.
