SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Law enforcement officials are searching for an inmate that walked away from a local re-entry and rehabilitation facility.

Quincy Crawford, 24, walked away from the Male Community Re-entry Program facility Thursday before 2:30 p.m., according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDRC).

An emergency search was conducted following the report that Crawford's GPS device was tampered with around the same time he was last seen, CDRC said.

The GPS device was found in a nearby parking lot near a fast food restaurant. CDRC said Crawford was out on an approved pass to attend college courses.

Crawford is serving a six-year sentence for two counts of first-degree burglary and a second strike for pimping. He was scheduled to be released on probation in April 2018. 

Crawford was described as a black male, 5-feet and 9-inches tall, and weighing 171 pounds. Anyone with information is asked to call their local law enforcement agency or 911.
