SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – A 60-year-old woman who fled a Michigan prison nearly 37 years ago has been captured in San Diego, where she was living under an assumed name, law enforcement officials said on Wednesday.

Judy Lynn Hayman was arrested on a fugitive warrant earlier this week after a detective working cold cases stuck inside during a recent winter storm found her fingerprints in an FBI database, said Lieutenant Russ Marlan of the Michigan Department of Corrections.

“The investigator inside his desk had about 40 cases of these old fugitives that had never been apprehended,” Marlan said. “He started working all these old cases.”

He said Hayman’s prints were in the database from previous arrests in California.

Prison records show Hayman had served eight months of a 16-24 month sentence after pleading guilty in 1976 to attempted larceny when she was 23 years old. Under Michigan law, attempted larceny is the attempted theft of property worth over $100.

“She was stealing clothing from a couple of stores in Detroit and Lavonia,” Marlan said. “It was larceny, probably a reduced charged of attempted larceny – essentially shoplifting.”
