The inmate who escaped from Dade Correctional Institution on Halloween morning was captured Monday evening in Palm Beach County.
Ronald “Psycho’’ McCoy, a convicted armed robber serving two life sentences, was arrested about 5 p.m. after he was spotted by West Palm Beach police at a gas station.
His capture followed a long and chaotic weekend for officers and inmates at Dade Correctional, where he escaped Friday morning by hiding in a trash cart.
The prison, just south of Homestead and Florida City, has been plagued for years by security breaches as well as allegations of mass corruption and inmate abuse. Story here.
