The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is searching for a man who walked out of a Los Angeles County Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) early Sunday evening. 

The man, identified by CDCR as Anthony Tarin, was found to have left the facility at 6:13 p.m., and less than 15 minutes later, MCRP agents were notified that he had removed his GPS device. 

Tarin, 53, is five feet, six inches tall and weighs 155 pounds, the corrections department said. He is said to have hazel eyes and was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt and gray sweatpants. 

Authorities stated that Tarin has brown hair, but a photo provided by CDCR indicates he is bald. 

Tarin was received from L.A. County on Oct. 24, 2023, after being sentenced to two years and eight months for attempted robbery, a second-strike offense. He had been housed at MCRP Los Angeles County since April 8. 

Anyone who sees Tarin or has knowledge of his whereabouts should contact law enforcement or call 911. 

The CDCR’s Male Community Reentry Program is a voluntary program for male offenders who have two years or less left to serve on their sentence. The program links offenders to a range of community-based rehabilitative services that assist with substance use disorders, mental health care and social support. 

Since 1977, 99% of all people who have left an adult institution, camp or community-based program have been apprehended, CDCR said.
