Prison inmate who walked away in San Diego is caught in New Mexico – California News

A 24-year-old prison inmate who cut off his GPS tracking device and walked away from a San Diego facility last Thursday was taken into custody in New Mexico on Monday, officials said.

Quincy Crawford was supposed to be attending college classes when he walked away from a community re-entry program in Barrio Logan, state prison officials said.

Officials knew he had gone missing after they were notified that his GPS device had been tampered with. The device was found ditched near a trash can in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant in North Park, not far from the Male Community Re-Entry Program facility, officials said.

Crawford had been serving a six-year sentence for first-degree burglary and pimping since January 2015. He was scheduled to be released on probation in April.

Officials did not say how they tracked Crawford down in Albuquerque.

He will be transported back to California and his case is being referred to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, state prison officials said.
