Two years ago Angel Solis Lopez escaped from an Imperial County jail work detail and remained at large after fleeing into Mexicali.
On Tuesday Lopez turned himself in to authorities.
According to county Sheriff's Office Sgt. Delfino Matus, the 22-year-old Lopez contacted a county correctional sergeant and announced he was ready to hand himself over to the county Sheriff's Office.
A place was designated in Calexico where Lopez could meet deputies after he crossed the border.
At 11 p.m. Lopez was taken into custody, Matus said. He remained in county jail this morning with his bail set at $25,000.
He was arrested on a warrant for the jail escape.
When Lopez escaped he had been serving a nine-month sentence for a vehicle-code violation. Information on how much longer Lopez had to serve when he fled was unavailable.
