Jefferson County inmate captured in Boulder
GOLDEN — An inmate who escaped from the Jefferson County jail over a week ago has been captured in Boulder.
The sheriff’s office says 32-year-old Travis Sandlin was arrested Thursday morning.
Sandlin escaped through a fence in the recreation yard at the jail in Golden on Oct. 5, the first inmate to break out of the jail in its 27-year history. Since then, authorities say he stole at least three vehicles but remained in the Denver area.
