    This photo provided by Yakima Police Department shows Jacob John Lucey. who pleaded guilty to car theft charges and was released the same day to see his dying mother. Lucey has been a fugitive since Nov. 1 when he failed to return to the Yakima County Jail from a 24-hour furlough. According to Capt. Rod Light, the dying mother story was a ruse. Lucey was recaptured on Friday.

YAKIMA -- Yakima police say they have captured the fugitive who failed to return from a furlough to see his dying mother.
The Yakima Herald reported that Jacob Lucey was recaptured without incident, ending a three-day manhunt.
The arrest was made at a Yakima residence.
The 29-year-old had been missing since Nov. 1, when he failed to return from a 24-hour furlough from jail while awaiting sentencing on car theft charges.
The decision to furlough Lucey has infuriated police, who did not learn of his release until Tuesday.
That’s when detectives linked him to an armed carjacking over the weekend.
