A prison escapee was recaptured; three others still at large


IDAHO FALLS — A Bonneville County Jail inmate who walked away from a work crew on Thursday was picked up by police.

Idaho Falls police received a tip Saturday night about the whereabouts of 27-year-old Larry Mathew Robinson II. Police spokeswoman Jessica Clements said officers responded to the area near Winco, located him and conducted a traffic stop.

Robinson was taken into custody without incident. He was also reportedly found in possession of thirty dirty fentanyl pills and faces an additional charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Bonneville County Sheriff’s spokesman Bryan Lovell said law enforcement received numerous tips from the public that helped curb Robinson’s search efforts. He is expected to be charged with a felony for escaping from prison.

Robinson wasn’t the only inmate to break out of jail last week. On Wednesday, three Bonneville County Jail inmates reportedly cut off their ankle monitors while off work and did not return to jail.

Lovell said Sunday that Levi J. Bautista, 22, Tyson Greene Mitchell, 35, and Peter Andrew Lewis, 42, remain at large.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the escapees can contact the Bonneville County Dispatcher at (208) 529-1200, report anonymously online to East Idaho Crime Stoppers at www.IFcrime.org or via the P3tips app on a mobile device.
