SAN ANTONIO -- Authorities spent Thursday afternoon searching west San Antonio for an escaped trustee, according to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.

A spokesman for BCSO said a non-violent inmate escaped from a work van in the 500 block of Fredericksburg Rd., near Blanco Road, just before noon.

Eighteen-year-old Jesus 'Jesse' Mata is accused of jumping out of the van and fleeing on foot.

Mata has an original charge of failure to provide ID on a suspected theft of less than $500, according to Paul Berry, spokesman for BCSO.
