He said the escape was reported at 10:20 p.m.

Officers arrested Rodriguez around 3:40 a.m. Thursday at a home in the 2100 Block of 58th Street.Rodriguez was in jail on charges of burglary of a habitation. He now faces escape charges.

30-year-old Joshue Elizondo and Nina Garcia, 24, were both taken into custody along with Ygnacio Rodriguez Thursday morning.              

Deputies believe Garcia is Rodriguez' sister. Nina Garcia and Joshue Elizondo are charged with hindering the apprehension of a felon.
