SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say four of five inmates who escaped from a central California jail have been caught.

Madera County sheriff's spokeswoman Erica Stuart says the four were captured Saturday night, about 24 hours after they escaped from a county jail. No further details were available.

She says 33-year-old Juan Lopez, 26-year-old Jorge Lopez-Diaz, 25-year-old Abel Ramos and 19-year-old Ricardo Cendejas are all now in custody. All are from Madera.

Twenty-nine-year-old Roel Soliz of Chowchilla remains at large.

The men were being held in custody on various charges including attempted murder and armed robbery. It's unclear how they escaped.
