SANTEE, Calif. (KGTV) - A woman who escaped from the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility in Santee last weekend was located and recaptured Thursday night.

San Diego County Sheriff’s Department officials said Destiny Guns was taken into custody at about 9:30 p.m., but details on where she was spotted were not immediately released.

Guns, 22, escaped from the Santee jail on April 6 following a medical exam. 10News learned Guns climbed several fences and walls during her escape.

The inmate’s clothes were found in an open field near the jail, and police dogs traced her to the back of a shopping center but lost her trail.

Guns was initially arrested April 1 for possession of a stolen car.

After being recaptured Thursday, sheriff’s officials said Guns was rebooked on the original charge and faces a new charge related to the jail escape.
