Authorities Apprehend Offender Who Walked Away from San Diego Reentry Program

SAN DIEGO — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials tonight apprehended Adrian Lopez, an offender who walked away from the San Diego Male Community Reentry Program on Saturday, June 15.

Lopez was taken into custody without incident by CDCR’s Special Service Unit agents in the Chula Vista area at around 10 p.m. on Sunday, June 16. He will be transported to R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility and his case will be referred to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of escape charges.

Lopez, 26, was discovered missing Saturday morning when his GPS ankle monitor was removed while he was out on an approved community pass. He was received by CDCR from San Diego County in May 2017 with a six-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter. 

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 12 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.
