Inmate Who Busted Out of Bus Captured

September 25, 1996

An Orange County inmate who kicked out a bus window and jumped out while being taken to the James A. Musick Branch Jail was captured at a girlfriend's house, an Orange County sheriff's spokesman said Tuesday.

Arturo Martin Quezada, 22, a minimum-security inmate who worked at the County Jail, jumped from the bus about 8 p.m. Monday near Santiago Avenue and Santa Ana Boulevard, Sheriff's Lt. Ron Wilkerson said.

"There were no bars on the windows and when the bus neared the intersection, he just kicked it out and jumped out," Wilkerson said.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Quezada about 3 a.m. at the home of his girlfriend several miles away.
