The U.S. Marshals apprehended an escaped inmate from the Santa Clara County jail, at the Twin Creeks Apartments on James Donlon Blvd., Tuesday night, about 9:30 p.m. According to Sgt. Tom Fuhrmann the Antioch Police assisted the Marshals.

According to a report by NBC Bay Area, which was first to break the news, 26-year-old Desean Campbell was one of two inmates who broke out of jail before Thanksgiving, using bedsheets to rappel down to the ground the day.

At a news conference on Wednesday, Undersheriff Carl Neusel said Campbell was hiding out in his sister’s attic when he “crashed through the ceiling” and was arrested by the Marshals and Antioch police. Campbell’s sister, 24-year-old Marcaysha Alexander, was also arrested for harboring a fugitive.

In an interview on Wednesday morning, Frank Conroy, Supervisory Deputy United States Marshal, in San Francisco, said, “It’s a collective effort” with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and Antioch Police Department.

Asked how the Marshals Service became involved, he responded, “The sheriff’s office contacted us over the weekend, after it happened. We saw it on the news. They asked if we could help them out.”

Asked how they were able to catch both Campbell and the other escaped inmate, Conroy stated, “A lot of information came in from the public. We also got a lot of information from their criminal history and associates with their police interactions. With both of that type of information coming in we were able to determine people they knew. One in particular was a family member.”

That was Campbell’s sister, Marcaysha.

“We were able to develop information of a chance he was there,” at her apartment, he explained. “We conducted surveillance beginning in the early afternoon hours on Tuesday.”

“There were some people coming and going and we believed people were at that particular apartment,” Conroy continued. “So we decided to approach and see if anyone was in there at about 9:30 p.m.”

Asked if anyone answered or if they had to kick the door in, he said, “No. No one came to the door but we heard some movement inside. He (Campbell) tried to go up into the attic but he ended up falling through the ceiling. We heard him fall, and then he just came to the door opened it and surrendered.”

A $20,000 reward was offered and a tip led authorities to Alexander’s apartment. The money will be shared with the person or people who helped the Santa Clara County sheriff’s office, Neusel said.

An Antioch resident was on the scene and at 9:28 p.m. provided the Herald with the first photos of the Marshals’ and Antioch police action at the apartments.

Oakland man rescued from canal in Antioch, Wednesday morning

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

By Corporal James Stenger 3604, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Wednesday, November 23, 2016, at about 7:33 AM, Antioch Police Dispatch received a call regarding a 38-year-old male who jumped into the water district canal to the rear of the Sutter Delta Hospital Emergency Room, near Lone Tree Way at Sunset Lane. An APD K-9 unit was first on scene and contacted the male in the canal. The K-9 officer used his dog leash to attempt to help the male Oakland resident out of the canal.

The ConFire Water Rescue Team arrived on scene and assisted the APD K-9 officer by providing a long pole. They were able to get the male out of the frigid water.

This was a great collaboration between the APD and ConFire. It was determined that the male intentionally jumped into the canal and because of this he was placed on a mental health hold.

This preliminary information is made available by the Field Services Bureau. There will be no further information released regarding this case at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Antioch Police Department non emergency line at (925) 778-2441. You may also text-a-tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH.
