On March 12, Christopher Lee Brown, 37, impersonated another inmate to escape from a holding area across the street from the jail after Brown had been sentenced to four years in jail for burglary and identity theft. He was convicted of stealing laptops from a Alhambra health care facility that contained identifying information about 729,000 patients.

In 1997, Brown was convicted for assault with a deadly weapon in the San Luis Obispo County. Ten years later, he was arrested for spousal assault in the Santa Barbara area.

Officials describe Brown as a black man, about 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds.

Anyone with more information was urged to call the sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau Detective Randy Rue-Las at (562) 522-3199 or (562) 946-7231 or e- mail at mcbtips@lasd.org (wanted notice).

    He escaped during the recent party…..

    The warden threw a party in the county jail.
    The prison band was there and they began to wail.
    The band was jumpin and the joint began to swing.
    You should’ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.
    Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

    Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone,
    Little Joe was blowin on the slide trombone.
    The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang,
    The whole rhythm section was the purple gang.
    Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

    Number forty-seven said to number three:
    You’re the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
    I sure would be delighted with your company,
    Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me.
    Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

    The sad sack was a sittin on a block of stone
    Way over in the corner weepin all alone.
    The warden said, hey, buddy, don’t you be no square.
    If you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair.
    Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

    Shifty Henry said to bugs, for heavens sake,
    No ones lookin, now’s our chance to make a break.
    Bugsy turned to shifty and he said, nix nix,
    I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks.
    Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.
