Inmate Who Walked Away from Fenner Canyon Conservation Camp Apprehended

PACOIMA – A minimum-security inmate who walked away from Fenner Canyon Conservation Camp in Los Angeles County on July 20 was apprehended last night.

Numerous investigative techniques led special agents with CDCR’s Rancho Cucamonga Special Service Unit and personnel from the LAPD-Foothill Division to a location in Pacoima where Louie Aguilar, 39, was believed to be staying.

During surveillance of that location, Aguilar was seen coming out of a garage. He was arrested without incident at approximately 8:20 p.m. and transported to California Institution for Men in Chino.

Aguilar was received by CDCR from Los Angeles County in September 2018 with a six-year sentence for second-degree robbery, his second strike, with a one-year enhancement for personal use of a weapon. His case will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office for consideration of escape charges.

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