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.
