Jacob Lucey Behind Bars Again and Looking at New Charges
Jacob Lucey, 29, is back behind bars after police arrested him at a Yakima home on Friday afternoon. Lucey missed his first court date two weeks ago.
Recapturing him became a top priority for Yakima Police Department, but police are most upset they had to hunt him down at all.
Lucey told a judge his mother was dying. He was given a 24-hour break from jail with no ankle monitor.
Lucey never returned to jail. Police believe the dying mother story is a lie.
Police found Lucey Friday afternoon on the 1900 block of Roosevelt Avenue.
Investigators said Lucey surrendered. It brought the manhunt to a close after officers worked non-stop for days to find him. Court papers reveal the prosecutor, defense attorney and judge all thought the furlough was acceptable.
