Inmate walks away from Rountree jail facility


WATSONVILLE — Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man who walked away from the Rountree Rehabilitation and Re-entry Facility in Watsonville on Sunday.

Joseph Bollom, Sr., 54, walked away from the medium-security facility, SCCSO Sgt. Dee Baldwin said. Along the way, he discarded his jail-issued shirt.

He is wanted on a $50,000 warrant for escape.

Bollom was in custody on a probation violation. He is not considered a threat to the community. He has “strong ties” to the City of Santa Cruz, Baldwin said.
