Offender Walks Away from Bakersfield Reentry Facility

BAKERSFIELD — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are searching for Dylan Warren, who walked away from the Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) facility in Bakersfield on Sunday, Feb. 13.

At approximately 6:22 p.m., Warren was confirmed to have walked away from the facility and agents from CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety were immediately dispatched to locate and apprehend Warren. Local law enforcement agencies were also notified.

Warren, 26, is a White man who is 6’ 2” tall, weighs 209 pounds, has brown hair and hazel eyes and is wearing a black jacket, dark pants, black shoes with white soles and a gray beanie.

Warren was sentenced to state prison from Kern County on July 5, 2019 for first-degree burglary and first-degree burglary as a second-striker. He had been housed in the MCRP since Dec. 9, 2021.

Anyone who sees Warren 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 re-entry 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 two years 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.
