By rlsmetro on

Police took a Bridgeton prisoner back into custody after he escaped authorities last week.

Police say David Riley, 34, of Bridgeton City, N.J., was located and arrested on Saturday, August 11, in Baltimore, M.D.

According to a statement released by NJ state police, based on a cooperative investigation, investigators from the New Jersey State Police Fugitive Unit, Troop “A” Criminal Investigation Office, U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Regional Task Force, U.S. Marshals Capitol Area Regional Task Force, and Maryland State Police determined that Riley fled New Jersey to Baltimore after escaping from the custody of officers from the Cumberland County Department of Corrections.

Police say Riley was apprehended by U.S. Marshals at a bus terminal in the city and lodged in the Baltimore City detention center where he awaits extradition to New Jersey.

During the investigation, investigators determined that Riley’s father, David Carty, 58, of Bridgeton, N.J., drove him to Baltimore and bought him a bus ticket to Atlanta, G.A.

Troopers from the State Police Fugitive Unit and Troop “A” Criminal Investigation Office located and arrested Carty at a motel in Vineland.

Police charged Carry with hindering apprehension, obstruction of justice, and aiding another in an escape then lodged him in Cumberland County Jail where he awaits a bail detention hearing.

Charges are mere accusations, and the suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
