The Oklahoma Department of Corrections reports the arrest of fugitive Paul Hartsell, who walked away from Bridgeway halfway house in Ponca City in November and stole a van during his getaway.
Oklahoma City Police arrested Hartsell last Friday near NW 9th and Penn Avenue in a stolen vehicle. Hartsell walked away around Thanksgiving from Bridgeway and now faces an auto theft charge.
Hartsell was serving multiple Oklahoma County sentences for domestic assault and battery, and second-degree burglary when he walked away, ODOC reports.
He will likely face additional time for walking away and stealing the van, which the halfway house owned.
