DEL NORTE – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials, assisted by CAL FIRE, the California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement agencies, are still searching for Lester Jackson, a minimum-security inmate who walked away from Alder Conservation Camp in Del Norte County early Tuesday morning.
Jackson, who was assigned as a firefighter, was last seen at Alder Conservation Camp in Klamath on March 31 wearing grey sweat pants.
Jackson, 30, is a black male, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighing 170 pounds with brown eyes, long black hair worn in dreadlocks, a mustache and a short beard. He has a tattoo on his outer right forearm that says “GRIMY” and another on his inner right forearm with a picture of a prison tower and a lit candle below it. Jackson has several tattoos on his torso; one reads “trippin 4 life.” He was received from Solano County in May 2011 with an 11-year, 10-month sentence for second-degree robbery, false imprisonment and carjacking. He was scheduled to parole in June 2020.
Jackson has associates in Oakland. Anyone who sees him should call 911 or contact law enforcement authorities immediately. Anyone having knowledge of Jackson’s whereabouts should contact the California Correctional Center Watch Commander at (530) 257-2181, extension 4173.
Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp or community-based program without permission have been apprehended.
