Offender Walks Away From Alternative Custody Program

APPLE VALLEY – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for an offender who walked away from the Alternative Custody Program (ACP).

At around 4 a.m., Monday, Jan. 8, local law enforcement was dispatched to the residence of ACP participant Manuel Solis, 36, for a domestic dispute. Solis cut off his electronic in-home detention monitor and fled the residence before police arrived.

Agents from CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety were immediately dispatched to locate and apprehend Solis.

Solis is a Hispanic male, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighing 205 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was received into CDCR custody from San Bernardino County on March 2, 2017, to serve a two-year, eight-month sentence for manufacture/possession/sale of a billy/blackjack. He had been participating in ACP at a private residence since December 2017 and was scheduled to be released in April 2018.

Anyone with information about Solis’ whereabouts is asked to call 911.

ACP is a voluntary program developed for eligible offenders that allows them to serve up to the last 12 months of their sentence in the community in lieu of confinement in state prison. Eligible participants may be housed in a private residence, a transitional care facility or a residential drug or other treatment program.

Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp or community-based program without permission have been apprehended.
