A participant who left the Los Angeles County re-entry program was detained

LOS ANGELES – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials today announced the arrest of an individual who exited the Men’s Community Reentry Program (MCRP) in Los Angeles County on Sunday, June 9, 2024.

At approximately 10:35 a.m., Anthony Tarin, 53, was arrested without incident in the city of Monterey Park. He will be taken to the California Institute for Men for admission, and his case will be forwarded to the Los Angeles County District Attorney for possible escape charges.

Tarin was admitted from Los Angeles County on October 24, 2023. He was sentenced to two years and eight months for attempted robbery, a second-strike felony. As of April 8, 2024, he has been incarcerated at the MCRP facility in Los Angeles County.

The MCRP program allows eligible offenders incarcerated in state prison to complete their sentence at a re-entry facility and provides them with the programs and tools necessary to transition from custody to the community. This is a voluntary program for male offenders who have two years or less left on their sentence. The program provides offenders with access to a range of community-based rehabilitation services that help treat substance use disorders, provide mental health care, medical care, employment, education, housing, family reunification and social support.

Since 1977, 99 percent of all people who left adult institutions, camps, or community programs without permission have been arrested.
