The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office have captured escaped upper Michigan fugitive John Wesley Saatio after he escaped from a private inmate transportation vehicle during a restroom break at mile marker 29 (Eastbound I-10) rest area in Florida.
At 6:52 PM, a citizen advised police of a suspicious person walking in a wooded area. Based on the description provided, it was believed to be John Saatio. Deputies using K-9 units tracked Saatio for approximately 2 miles and approximately 4 hours when he was apprehended without incident.
Upon searching Saatio, they found 2 makeshift handcuff keys that were located in his socks. Needless to say, he won't be escaping again.
