Police Searching For Tatted-Up Inmate Who Escaped From Halfway House

Police are looking for a felon with face tattoos who escaped a halfway house in LA.

Police in L.A. say they're looking for a tatted-up inmate who walked away from a reentry program facility. 

According to a statement from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Richard T. Tarin was serving a five-year, eight month sentence for driving under the influence of alcohol and "causing great bodily injury." Terry Thorton, a spokeswoman for the California DCR, says the man made his move on Saturday. 

"Participants are on GPS monitoring, and he removed his electronic monitoring device," Thorton said. 

Tarin was supposed to be in the halfway house until November. He began his stay at the Los Angeles halfway house after being transferred from the California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo on April 3rd. 

Authorities describe Tarin as 5'9" tall, weighing 178 lbs. He also has several tattoos on his face, including one on his cheekbone that resembles the W from the Walgreens logo. 

"If anyone knows where he is, they should immediately contact law enforcement, or contact 911," Thorton said.
