MESSAGE FROM SHERIFF SANDRA HUTCHENS
“Last night, three inmates escaped from Men’s Central Jail in Santa Ana. We are utilizing every resource available to ensure these inmates are brought back into custody as quickly as possible. As Sheriff, my utmost concern and primary responsibility is the safety of each Orange County resident. I take this situation very seriously and the men and woman of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department will not rest until all three men are captured.
“The three escapees, Hossein Nayeri, Jonathan Tieu, and Bac Tien Duong, are dangerous criminals. My investigations team is working around the clock with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, the Orange County Probation Office, the U.S. Marshals and the FBI. I am confident that this collaborative effort will result in returning these inmates to where they belong- behind bars.
“The capture of these inmates can be expedited with the public’s help. If you see one of these men, call 9-1-1. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of these inmates, please call our Hotline at 714-628-7085 or Investigations at 714-647-7014. Anonymous tips may be submitted to Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227).”
