Inmate Walks Away from Julius Klein Conservation Camp

Azuza – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for a minimum-security inmate who walked away from the Julius Klein Conservation Camp, located near Azuza, in Los Angeles County.

Inmate Wade Anthony Raffaniello was last seen in his assigned dorm at approximately 12:05 a.m. during a routine security check. Camp staff searched the inmate dormitory area, surrounding buildings and the camp perimeter after he was discovered missing. All local law enforcement agencies and the California Highway Patrol have been notified, and are assisting in the search for Raffaniello.
Inmate Raffaniello is described as a 50-year old white male, about 5’9’’ tall and 200 lbs., with shaved head and hazel eyes. Inmate Raffaniello was transferred to the custody of CDCR from Los Angeles County earlier this year with a four-year sentence for transport and sales of controlled substance. He was scheduled for release on April 5, 2018.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Julius Klein Conservation Camp Commander at (626) 910-1213, the Sierra Conservation Center Watch Commander (209) 984-5291 ext. 5439, or your local law enforcement agency.
