A Peruvian man who escaped from jail by leaving his twin brother in his place has been recaptured by authorities after 13 months at large.

Police said he drugged his brother, swapped his clothes and walked free.

He was the first prisoner in more than a decade to escape from the prison. Giancarlo was initially put under arrest under suspicion that he had aided and abetted his brother, but was subsequently cleared of charges.

"The case of the twin is unbelievable, in 12 years no one had escaped from [the prison]", Justice Minister Marisol Perez Tello told La Nacion. It is not clear if the police was tipped off by someone about Alexander's whereabouts or they tracked him on their own.

"This relative was detained instead of him, but today Delgado Herrera has already been arrested".

Speaking to local media after his arrest, Alexander Delgado said he used the ruse to escape "because I was desperate to see my mother". This makes it very hard, in practice, for relatives to visit, because of the distance and other related obstacles.
