Runaway inmate at Pondville Correctional Facility in Norfolk apprehended after manhunt

An inmate serving a 12-to-14-year sentence at the Pondville Correctional Center in Norfolk who escaped Friday afternoon was captured in Holyoke after a five-hour manhunt, a spokeswoman for the state prison system said.

Juan Lugo, 45, previously of Holyoke, was on a work crew when he allegedly ­escaped around 12:40 p.m. The state Depart­ment of Correction apprehension unit, State Police, and local police departments were alerted of the escape and aided in Lugo’s capture, said spokeswoman Diane Wiffin.
