bradley monicalOREGON CITY, Ore.  — U.S. Marshals arrested an escaped inmate a year after Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters vowed to put the man back behind bars.

Clackamas County authorities say Bradley Monical was taken into custody outside of Oregon City without incident.  Monical was transferred to the Multnomah County Jail on several outstanding warrants.

On November 19, 2012, Monical slipped out of third floor rec room, climbed across the roof, jumped 15 feet onto a tree, and shimmied down to freedom.His escape from the Jackson County Jail was the first successful jailbreak since the 1980s.

At the time, Sheriff Mike Winters dedicated several resources from the Sheriff’s Office to finding Monical, including a $6,000 reward. Monical was originally arrested for robbery charges and was awaiting trial for a bank robbery in Ashland.
