Two CYA escapees caught

Two wards who escaped from the Washington Ridge Youth Conservation Camp above Nevada City earlier today were caught on Lake Vera Road at 3:31 p.m. by Nevada County Sheriff’s Deputies.

The escapees, Rony Estrada and Joshua Pimental, both 18, were incarcerated for burglary and car theft “and did not have serious offenses in their backgrounds,” according to camp Superintendent Steve Gardner.
