PSP Hamburg received information from the Crime Alert Berks County tip line that Collazo was at a residence in that block. Patrol unit members from PSP Hamburg arrived at the residence and surrounded the building. Collazo attempted to escape through the rare yard, however he was met by trooper and then taken into custody. He was transported to the Berks County Sheriff’s Department for service of the escape warrant.

Collazo left Wernersville Community Correction Center in South Heidelberg Township on July 12 without authorization. After a pulled fire alarm system was used to create a diversion, Collazo followed Ryan Allen Celani, 28, of Pottsville, out of the facility. They then fled on foot and went into an unknown direction.
