LOS ANGELES — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for Miguel Anguiano, 30, who walked away from the Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 1.
An emergency search was conducted after CDCR was notified at 12:25 p.m. that Anguiano’s electronic monitoring device had been tampered with.
Notification was immediately made to local law enforcement agencies. Within minutes, agents from CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety were dispatched to locate and apprehend Anguiano.
Anguiano is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was received by CDCR from Los Angeles County on March 15, 2007, with a 12-year sentence for second degree robbery with use of a firearm. He was transferred from California Institution for Men to MCRP in January 2018. He was scheduled to be released in September 2018.
Anyone who sees Anguiano or has any knowledge of his whereabouts should immediately contact law enforcement or call 911.
The MCRP allows eligible offenders committed to state prison to serve the end of their sentences in the reentry center and provides them the programs and tools necessary to transition from custody to the community. It is a voluntary program for male offenders who have approximately one year left to serve. The program links offenders to a range of community-based rehabilitative services that assist with substance use disorders, mental health care, medical care, employment, education, housing, family reunification and social support.
Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp, or community-based program without permission have been apprehended.
