Offender Walks Away from Los Angeles Reentry Facility

LOS ANGELES — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for Andre Miller, 30, who walked away from the Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) facility in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 22.

An emergency search was conducted after being notified at approximately 10:30 a.m. today that Miller’s GPS device had been tampered with, and that he had been seen exiting the side door by staff. Miller’s GPS device was found in his bedroom.

Notification was immediately made to local law enforcement agencies. Within minutes, agents from CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety were dispatched to locate and apprehend Miller. 

Miller is 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds. He was received by CDCR from Los Angeles County on June 30, 2016, with a two-year sentence for two counts of second-degree burglary. Miller was transferred from the California Institution for Men (CIM) to the MCRP on April 21. He was scheduled to be released to probation in May 2017.  

Anyone who sees Miller 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 reentry 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 one year 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.
