LOS ANGELES (CNS) - An inmate who walked away from the Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) facility in Los Angeles was recaptured in Las Vegas today by that city's local police.
Davonte Lauderdale, 28, left the MCRP, at 3745 Grand Ave., just after midnight Friday, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He was rearrested today about 5 p.m., the CDCR reported.
Laudendal was sent to the CDCR from L.A. County on July 31, 2019 with a four-year sentence for burglary, the CDCR reported.
He was transferred into the MCRP on Dec. 2, 2020 and scheduled for parole in Sept. 2021.
The MCRP allows eligible offenders in state prison to serve the end of their sentences in the reentry center, which gives them tools to transition from custody back to the community, the CDCR reported.
Since 1977, 99% of all offenders who leave an adult institution, camp or community-based program without permission have been rearrested, the CDCR reported.
