Prisoner Who Escaped From San Quentin After Christmas Caught At Taco Bell

A vehicle at Taco Bell

A San Quentin prison inmate who escaped the penitentiary earlier this week was taken into custody on Saturday afternoon. Shalom Mendoza (21) was arrested at a Taco Bell in Paso Robles.

Mendoza had already been on the run for three days when the urge for his favorite Taco Bell meal became too much. The escaped convict popped in to the chain restaurant and was spotted by a member of the public, per The Mercury News. This civilian contacted the agents who responded speedily to the tip off.

It appears as if the civilian recognized Mendoza from descriptions released to the press about the escaped convict. The 21-year-old was described as a 5-foot-5-inch, 177-pound male of Hispanic descent, who had brown hair and brown eyes. The public was warned that Mendoza was considered dangerous. Authorities had launched a manhunt for the inmate across the state.
