Sources said the prison guards did not check the inmate's presence in the cell even after federal investigators called and asked them to do so at around 1:00 am on the night of the escape.

The fugitive left a note in which he mocked the guards for not catching him. During a conversation overheard by the police shortly after his escape, Mordukhaev also claimed that it would be a week before the police knew where he was.

But the police managed to arrest Mordukhaev in Brighton Beach less than a day after his escape. The fugitive was heading home to the mother of a high-ranking member of the KavKaz Nation gang, Roman Nikoghosyan.

According to the federal prosecutor's office, the voice of Nikoghosyan, who was also arrested, was heard on wiretaps. He tried to persuade his mother to accept the fugitive while he found a car to take Mordukhaev out of New York. He also made her send $ 2000 to Mordukhaev.

Mordukhaev also posed as a policeman, which is also a criminal offense. He was arrested in April 2020 after he and another suspect, showing police badges and a walkie-talkie, “fined” an SUV driver in Brooklyn $ 340 and took marijuana from him. When the victim realized that these two were not policemen, he tried to follow them in his car.
