PORTLAND, Ore. — A 38-year-old fugitive who escaped an Oregon federal prison camp in April has been captured in Nevada, according to U.S. Marshals.
Andrew Cain Kristovich had been staying in a tent in Carson City, Nevada, where officials also found a semi-automatic rifle, KOIN-TV reported on Friday.
Authorities said Kristovich escaped from the Federal Correctional Institution, Sheridan, on April 25 after hiding in bushes and crawling through a prison fence where he was picked up by his ex-girlfriend.
According to court documents, Kristovich was originally arrested by federal agents in 2018 on gun charges and a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl-laced imitation oxycodone pills.
