SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Here are some key dates and events in the escape and hunt for three California inmates who broke out of a maximum security jail using a Google Earth map, cutting tools and a rope made of bed linens. Hossein Nayeri, 37, Jonathan Tieu, 20, and Bac Duong, 43, were all back in custody Saturday after Nayeri and Tieu were arrested in San Francisco. Duong turned himself in Friday.
The FBI negotiated with four armed occupants at a remote federal wildlife refuge in Oregon on Saturday while the holdouts in a video posted online expressed their mistrust of the government and reluctance to leave.
