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 firstname.lastname@example.org (wanted notice).
