Authorities have caught all five of the inmates who escaped from the Madera County Jail.

MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) -- Authorities have caught all five of the inmates who escaped from the Madera County Jail on Friday night.

The Madera County Sheriff's Office says deputies arrested Roel Soliz, 29, in Fairmead just before 3 p.m. Sunday.

The other four inmates, Juan Lopez, 30, Abel Ramos, 25, Ricardo Cendejas, 19, and Jorge Lopez-Diaz, 26, were taken into custody on Saturday night.

"They were hiding. These guys were trying to figure out where they're going to go next, just to get out and evade law enforcement," said sheriff's spokeswoman Erica Stuart.

Officials say anonymous tips to the sheriff's office and Crime Stoppers helped lead to the capture of all five inmates.

The jail is still investigating how the five men were able to breach security. It's unclear if they worked as a team to get out.
