Inmate who walked away from Manchester halfway house recaptured
Victor Soto Jr., 37, who was serving a 1 1/2-to-5-year sentence for burglary out of Hillsborough County Superior Court, Northern District, went missing at 9:30 a.m. Thursday from the halfway house known as the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit on Lowell Street.
By 2:40 p.m., however, he was in handcuffs after state Department of Corrections officers were tipped he could be found at the Homeless Services Center at 140 Central St., according to DOC spokesman Jeffrey Lyons. Soto allegedly tried to make a run for it, but was quickly captured.
He was back at the state prison in Concord just after 5 p.m. Lyons said Soto, because he violated halfway house rules, will face disciplinary action up to being charged with escape, a class B felony that carries a maximum sentence of from 3 1/2-to-7 years in prison.
Originally, Soto was sentenced to state prison on Dec. 13, 2011. He was eligible for parole on Feb. 12, 2013 and his maximum release date was Aug. 15, 2016 — that is until he allegedly left the halfway house without permission.
