An inmate who escaped from St. Croix’s Anna’s Hope Detention Center on Thursday was back in custody as of Sunday morning, according to V.I. Bureau of Corrections officials.
Roy Mullinar, 44, who is serving time for a burglary conviction, made a break Thursday while on garbage detail. Corrections officials said that Mullinar, who wasn’t considered dangerous, was reported missing shortly after 10 a.m. on Thursday after he jumped off a garbage truck at the Anna’s Hope facility and ran into the bush without being seen.
Mullinar was recaptured without incident by corrections personnel early Sunday morning in Christiansted. The inmate was being held at the Anna’s Hope center pending a decision on an appeal for a two-year sentence for burglary.
