The inmates climbed through the ceiling and came down through a hatch that leads to a back door, he said.

Officers took them to an area for questioning, got in touch with Monterey County Sheriff's Department and ultimately made the arrests.

Three days later, Fonseca shot and killed a 27-year-old man in a Salinas park, authorities said.

Investigators have not yet determined how long they worked on making the hole or if anyone else helped them escape or helped them after they were out.

The Monterey County Sheriff's tweet on Sunday has garnered plenty of lovely responses from Trump's America about these two being set free by our sanctuary state before they cold be nabbed by ICE, but by all accounts they were both born American citizens.

Monterey County is south of San Jose, on the Pacific coast.

CBP spokeswoman Jackie Wasiluk said the men didn't present any documents. The two then slipped into the jail's walls, maneuvering past ducts and pipes in a maintenance access area until they reached an escape hatch, authorities said. It's unclear how the pair made it to Southern California and across the border into Mexico.

They should be considered armed and risky, the sheriff's office said.

Santos Fonseca, 21, and Jonathan Salazar, 20, escaped from the Monterey County Jail in Salinas in the early hours of Sunday, and remain on the run as of Tuesday afternoon. He said he couldn't provide details.

That's lower than five undefeated teams (LSU, Penn State, Ohio State, Alabama and Baylor) - plus one-loss OR and two-loss Auburn. UCLA, which Oklahoma beat 48-14 earlier this season, travels to Utah carrying a 4-2 Pac 12 record and winners of three straight.

Deputies found his motel room empty.

Authorities are searching for the fugitives, who are considered armed and risky. "Unfortunately, last night he wasn't there".

Salazar and Fonseca had been in custody since 2018, and both were awaiting trial on murder charges in separate cases.

Salazar was arrested in connection with the October 2017 shooting death of 20-year-old Jaime Martinez.

Salazar and Fonseca have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them and are scheduled to go to trial next year, court records show.

Fonseca told police his gang leader told him to kill someone to prove he was still loyal to the 'Boronda gang, ' Detective Gabriela Contreras said.

Fonseca is accused of shooting and killing Lorenzo Gomez Acosta, 37, on June 2, 2018, while the victim sat in his vehicle on a video call with his wife in Mexico, the newspaper reported.

Acosta was reportedly chosen at random.

Fonseca had been in jail after his arrest in connection with the 2018 killings of Lorenso Acosta in Salinas, Calif. on June 2 a year ago and Ernesto Cruz at a park in that city three days later, according to The Mercury News. Authorities said he told police that the gang leader also ordered the slaying and that he picked his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend "to send him a message", according to the newspaper.
