An inmate escaped from a work crew in Tolleson just after 11 a.m. Friday, the Arizona Department of Corrections said.
Dyan Castorena, 40, was working at Manheim Auto Auction at 201 N. 83rd Ave. in Tolleson when she took a car from the auction, authorities said. She was last seen driving west on Van Buren Street in a silver Toyota Camry.
Castorena was sentenced to 18 months for theft and had been serving that time in Perryville Arizona State Prison Complex since July, according to records.
Perryville and Lewis prison complexes have dispatched Department of Corrections teams to apprehend Castorena.
