Escaped Stockton inmate with skull facial tattoo captured

STOCKTON, Calif. (KGO) -- It took almost a month but an escaped inmate from Stockton with quite an unusual tattoo is now back under arrest.

Stockton Police posted the inmate's photo on Facebook. It's hard to believe Corey Hughes stayed hidden all this time when he has a skull tattoo on his face.

Police say they got a tip about Hughes on Thursday, found him and arrested him.

Hughes escaped on November 27 from an honor farm, where he was serving time on a weapons charge.
