Torres Unit Escaped Trustee Back Behind Bars
TDCJ Torrres Unit Inmate Tony Steve Requeno, 31, was last seen Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m. at the Torres unit. He was working as a trustee on a tractor in the garden on prison grounds. The tractor was found about an hour later.
Requeno was arrested after a concerned citizen saw a suspicious person walking down P.R. 5521 in the town of D'Hanis about 7:20 am. A Medina County deputy was dispatched to the location and drove up on Requeno and picked him up without incident.
Requeno was taken before a judge and charged with felony escape.
