Two juveniles who escaped from a San Mateo County correctional facility this week were captured by sheriff’s deputies and arrested later that night, along with three women allegedly involved in the boys’ escape. According to the sheriff’s office, deputies were dispatched at 8:11 p.m. Tuesday to the Log Cabin Boys Ranch in La Honda, where the two escapees reportedly hopped into a waiting vehicle that sped off from the facility.

On their way to the ranch, the deputies encountered a Buick Park Avenue matching the suspect vehicle’s description, and deputies stopped the car. Deputies found the 17-year-old boys, of San Francisco, in the car with San Francisco residents Rokesha Pineda, 21, and Angelica Pineda, 19, and Antioch resident Kelvina Burton, 18. Staff from the ranch responded to the stopped vehicle and positively identified the boys as the escapees.

Deputies arrested all of the people in the car, the juveniles on suspicion of escape from custody and conspiracy and the women on suspicion of aiding escapees and conspiracy. The boys were booked into the San Mateo County Youth Service Center in San Mateo, and the women were booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City.
