Offender Walks Away From Alternative Custody Program

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

Nicarandro Sanchez was released from state prison on April 3, 2019 and was instructed to report to a San Jose parole office the next morning. On April 4, 2019 at 3 p.m. ACP staff notified CDCR officials that Sanchez had failed to report to the parole office as instructed.

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

Sanchez, 43, is a Hispanic male, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing 199 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was received into CDCR custody from Santa Clara County in August 2018, to serve a three-year sentence for vehicle theft with prior vehicle-related theft convictions.

Anyone with information about Sanchez’s 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.
