Authorities in Central California have captured a fifth man who escaped a correctional facility.

Madera County Sheriff John Anderson announced that deputies apprehended Roel Soliz in Fairmead shortly before 3 p.m. Sunday after receiving an anonymous phone tip.

A pair of special sheriff's units caught the other four escapees — Juan Lopez, Jorge Lopez-Diaz, Abel Ramos and Ricardo Cendejas — late Saturday night, also following an anonymous phone tip.

No other details were immediately available.

The men were being held in custody on various charges including attempted murder and armed robbery when they escaped from the county jail on Friday night.
