Inmate erroneously released from jail
January 25, 2014
Santa Barbara County Jail officials mistakenly released an inmate from custody on Friday.
The sheriff’s office is asking the public for help in locating 24-year-old Eduardo Guzman Gonzalez. The former inmate was released from jail due to procedural errors.
In jail for a charge of domestic violence, Gonzalez was ineligible for release due to a probation violation and an immigration detainer. Once the erroneous release was identified, the Sheriff’s Office notified local law enforcement agencies in an attempt to locate Gonzalez.
Officials are asking anyone who spots Gonzalez to call 911 immediately. To leave an anonymous tip, call 805-681-4171.
