Escaped Sutter jail inmate turns self in

MARYSVILLE, CA - A Sutter County Jail inmate who escaped Wednesday night surrendered Friday.

Nickolas Pattee, 26, was spotted by a Marysville police officer at noon at the same time he was using a cellphone to turn himself in, said jail Capt. David Sampson. Pattee was still wearing jail garb, minus a shirt.

Sampson said Pattee said he was giving up because officers were everywhere he went, either ahead of him or just behind him.

Pattee was originally sentenced for driving a car without consent. He was serving his three-year sentence as a realignment inmate since May 22, 2012.

He escaped from the jail by going out through a fire door and climbing a 14-foot razor-wire fence. There was a gap in the razor wire over the fence gate and that's where Pattee climbed, according to Sampson.

Search continues for Sutter County Jail escapee

SUTTER COUNTY, CA - On Thursday, authorities continued to search for a minimum-security inmate who escaped from Sutter County Jail on Wednesday night.

Sutter County Jail commander, Capt. David Sampson, told the Appeal Democrat that Jonathan Nickolas Pattee, 26, broke out of jail around 10:10 p.m., slipping through a fire door, before scaling a 14-foot razor-wire fence and disappearing.

Corrections officers were alerted to Pattee's escape by a sounding alarm from the fire door through which the inmate had exited, said Sampson. Pattee was then observed fleeing on surveillance video, and a head count was conducted to determine the prisoner's identity.

Despite recently upgrading the security fence, Pattee was able to slip through a gap where there is no razor-wire, Sampson revealed.

UP Unveils Experimental Locomotive to Test Emissions-Reduction Technology

UP Unveils Experimental Locomotive to Test Emissions-Reduction Technology

Union Pacific Railroad today unveiled an advanced experimental locomotive at its J.R. Davis Yard in Roseville that will test three emissions-reducing technologies including exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC), and diesel particulate filters (DPF). Years in development, UP 9900 will be used for operations in northern California ranging approximately 200 miles from its base in Roseville. UP 9900 is the signature unit in a series of 25 locomotives that Union Pacific is analyzing as part of a broad test of various emissions-reduction techniques in northern and southern California. This is the latest step in the company’s ongoing effort to design, build and test technologies that reduce emissions.

Union Pacific engineers worked closely with locomotive manufacturer Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD) to reduce the standard freight locomotive engine size in UP 9900 to create the space needed to install EGR, DOC, and DPF.
