LOS ANGELES – An inmate walked away from a Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
MCRP is offered to eligible offenders in state prison to assist them with the skills and services necessary for reentry into the community toward the end of their sentence. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials said that Sandy Siders, 40, was serving time for extortion by means of force/threat. He was received by CDCR from Los Angeles County in September 2016. Siders was transferred to the MCRP on May 8, 2018, and was scheduled for release in April 2019.
Authorities searched for Siders after they were notified approximately 5:00 p.m., that Siders ran out of the MCRP and at some point, removed his GPS device. “Notification was immediately made to local law enforcement agencies,” CDCR officials said. “Within minutes, agents from CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety were dispatched to locate and apprehend Siders.”
Siders is described as 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. Anyone who sees Siders or has any knowledge of his whereabouts should immediately contact law enforcement or call 911.For late-breaking news, follow 24/7 Headline News on our Los Angeles County Facebook group, Riverside County Facebook group, Coachella Valley News group, US News group, Victor Valley/Inland Empire Facebook group.
