A California Men’s Colony inmate who authorities say escaped last October has been charged with three felonies.

David Gregory Grayhall, 26, is charged with escaping custody, vehicle theft, and having a prior violent felony conviction under the Three Strikes Law.

Grayhall was serving a five-year sentence at CMC for a second-degree robbery conviction out of Los Angeles County when authorities say he stole a van from the prison and fled. CMC officials said he was a minimum-security inmate assigned to work in the prison garage.

Grayhall was missing for more than two weeks. Prison officials say he was apprehended at a park in southwest Los Angeles. The van was reportedly found nearby.

According to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office, if convicted, Grayhall faces a maximum sentence of seven years and four months in state prison.
