Officials say an alert citizen saw social media posts about the incident and saw Molina walking on Guerneville Rd just outside Santa Rosa with his jail clothing turned inside out.
The citizen called in the tip and Molina was captured without incident.
Crum says Molina is in the North County Detention Facility north of Santa Rosa for a drug offense and is not considered a risk to the public.
The other male inmate who walked away from the work crew was quickly caught, Crum said.
