Offender Walks Away from Los Angeles Reentry Facility

LOS ANGELES — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for Evan Bracken, 27, who walked away from the Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) facility in Los Angeles on Friday, June 8.

An emergency search was conducted after being notified at approximately 6:50 p.m. that Bracken jumped over the front fence and later removed his GPS device.

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 Bracken.

Bracken is 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He was received by CDCR from Orange County on January 30, 2013 with a seven-year, eight-month sentence for second degree burglary. Bracken was transferred from the California Institution for Men (CIM) to the MCRP on March 27, 2018. He was scheduled to be released to parole in February 2019.

Anyone who sees Bracken 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 11 months 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.
