Inmate mistakenly released from Lubbock jail caught in Hobbs

U.S. Marshals along with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrested a fugitive mistakenly released from jail Tuesday. Ernest Ray Zavala, 33, was arrested in Hobbs.

A statement from the Lubbock Sheriff’s Office earlier in the week said Zavala was “erroneously released” and that he was armed and dangerous. Now that he’s been captured, LSO deputies will conduct an investigation into what led to the release.
