Escaped inmate caught in Homestead, police say

Police in Homestead announced Thursday morning that a prison inmate who escaped from a work-release program had been captured and taken into custody.

Marv Hubbard was found sitting at a gas station on the corner of U.S. Highway 1 and Southwest 200th Street, Homestead police Detective Fernando Morales said.

Hubbard, 40, was serving a 20-year sentence for burglary at the Dade Correctional Institution.

Morales said Hubbard escaped about 1 p.m. on Wednesday while on a work detail.

“At approximately 1:10 in the afternoon, we received a call from Farm Share advising that a Department of Corrections inmate had left their premises,” Morales said.

Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman Ashley Cook said Hubbard was first assigned to a work-release program in August. Cook said the detail is given to inmates who have minimal time left on their sentence and have a history of good behavior while in prison.

A police command post was established in the area of Southwest 312th Street and Southwest 147th Avenue.

Sky 10 was flying above the area as police were using a helicopter and dogs to search for Hubbard.

The Florida City Police Department, Homestead Police Department, Florida Department of Corrections and Miami-Dade Police Department were all involved in the search.
