An inmate mistakenly released from a Los Angeles jail has been captured in Boulder City.

Police received assistance from the FBI after learning Steven Wright might be hiding out in a Boulder City hotel. He was arrested just before noon Monday.

Wright was awaiting trial in a murder case when he was released Jan. 31 because of a clerical error.

Wright is being held in Nevada until an extradition hearing.

Detectives also arrested Bruce Oliver and Lavera Wilson, both 39, for harboring, concealing or aiding a felony offender. They were booked in Clark County Detention Center and released after posting bond Tuesday.
