Woman Who Fled Prison Work-Release Caught

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a woman who fled a Pennsylvania prison work-release program last month has been caught in Naples.

Authorities say a 38-year-old Angela Honey Bilotta, of Macungie, Pa., and her husband, 40-year-old Oliver Jason Tressler were arrested Monday.

Authorities say Bilotta was arrested on active warrants out of Pennsylvania charging her with escape from the Lehigh County Womens Correctional Center in December 2010.

She was serving a one- to two-year prison sentence because of her conviction on theft charges.

Tressler was charged with failure to register as a convicted sex offender once he got to Florida.

Both remain in jail on Tuesday.

It wasn't immediately known if they had attorneys.
