CDCR Searching for Fugitive Juvenile Offender

First In Seven Years to Escape from Amador County Camp

Sacramento – The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is searching for a juvenile offender who was driven away by accomplices from a roadside community service project in Sutter Creek, Amador County.

At approximately 10:55 am, on Tuesday, December 27, 2011, Angel Iniquez was driven away from a roadside cleanup project by two Hispanic males in a white, compact car as CDCR officers were distracted by another crew member who needed medical attention after cutting his leg with a chainsaw.

Following the incident, the remaining 13 members of the crew were returned to the Pine Grove Conservation
Camp and all law enforcement agencies were alerted to Iniquez’ disappearance. CDCR also has dispatched fugitive apprehension teams from its Office of Correctional Safety to bring him back into custody.

Iniquez, 19 years old, is 5’ 9” tall, weighs 166 pounds and has brown eyes and black hair. He was committed to CDCR’s Division of Juvenile Justice from Monterey County on March 16, 2011 and had been assigned to the Pine Grove Conservation Camp since May 3, 2011.

It has been approximately seven years since a juvenile has attempted to escape from the Pine Grove Conservation Camp, despite the fact that the youth conduct 15-20 community service projects a week in Amador County and the surrounding region, in addition to supporting wild land fire crews throughout the state.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Harry Linden, Assistant Superintendent, Pine Grove Conservation Camp, at (209) 296-7581.
