Inmate Escapes, Possibly Seen At Local Mall


The search goes on for an inmate who walked away from a Tarpon Springs work release center Monday.

Officials say Raul Diaz was seen 10 miles south of the facility at the Westfield Countryside Mall in Clearwater.



But by the time police got there, he was gone, partly by using a bicycle (seen above) and then ditching the bike and taking off on foot.

Diaz had one year left on his sentence for burglary and theft.
