An inmate escaped the custody of Oneida County correction officers in Utica on Friday, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say around 12:40 p.m. Friday, 25-year-old Raheim Bradford of Utica was being escorted to the transport van at Utica City Court when he escaped custody. Bradford was going to be transported to the Oneida County Jail, where he was being sent on a charge of fourth-degree grand larceny.

Deputies say Bradford was taken back into custody by Utica police a short time later, in the area of Spring and Huntington streets.

Bradford was then taken to the Oneida County Jail without bail for his original grand larceny charge, and a warrant is also being issued for felony second-degree escape. He will appear in Utica City Court to face that charge at a later date.
