Two women were arrested on Friday after walking away from a minimum-security jail in Santa Cruz last week, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said today. Sarah Marko, 20 and Brittany Beus, 22, left the Blaine Street Women’s Facility on Feb. 13, Santa Cruz County sheriff’s spokeswoman April Skalland said. The women had been brought over from the county’s main jail to the Blaine Street facility at 11 a.m. that day and were processed, Skalland said. A short time later, they were seen running away from the facility.
Skalland said the Blaine Street facility is for inmates who are not considered a flight risk. Inmates are allowed to go outside, work and are not locked up.”Brittany and Sarah will never be allowed to go back to Blaine Street. They will now go to the main jail,” Skalland said. “I wouldn’t say it happens all the time, but it’s not uncommon,” she said of walkaways.
Beus was arrested at 5:18 p.m. on Friday in a car at state Highway 9 and Mill Street in Ben Lomond in the Santa Cruz Mountains. James Eddy, who was with Beus, was arrested for possession of stolen property, Skalland said. Marko was arrested around 11 p.m. on Friday while walking with Brittany’s brother, Nicholas Beus, a parolee at large. They were spotted near Capitola Road Extension and Soquel Drive near the eastern edge of Santa Cruz city limits.Nicholas Beus ran from deputies and is still wanted for his parole warrant and new charges, Skalland said.
