Default Escaped SC inmate captured after 40 years on the run

Escaped SC inmate captured after 40 years on the run

"An SCDC inmate who escaped in 1979 was captured on Wednesday in Dover, Delaware living under an assumed name and identity.

Jose Chico Romero, now 64, presented a fake ID card to the Dover Police on December 28.

He was arrested, processed and released under the name Arnaldo Figueroa, but his fingerprints later came back with a match for Romero. He was apprehended in Dover without incident on New Year’s Day.

Romero was serving an 18-year sentence for armed robbery from Aiken County when he escaped on Dec. 13, 1979. Romero was assigned to a work crew in Anderson County when he escaped. "

40 years is a long time to be looking over your shoulder. He would have been released many years ago.
