Authorities are searching for a 5 foot 2 inch tall man who escaped custody Monday by walking and riding away from his daily work program at Camp San Luis Obispo. The inmate was last seen riding a gray BMX cycle, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.

Thirty-five-year-old Adilio Lopez, of Los Angeles, is an inmate at the sheriff’s Honor Farm. He escaped his work program around 9:30 a.m. Monday. Camp San Luis Obispo employees were supervising Lopez at the time.

Lopez was last seen wearing Honor Farm apparel — a blue shirt and blue jeans. Officials describe his appearance as Hispanic and approximately 170 pounds.

Sheriff’s deputies and detectives, as well as Camp San Luis Obispo personnel and CHP officers are searching for Lopez. The fugitive is not considered dangerous and has no known history of violence, according to a sheriff’s office press release.

There currently appear to be no public safety concerns, the news release states. Investigators request that anyone who sees a man matching the description of Lopez call the sheriff’s office at 781-4550.

And why, if he was “working” at Camp San Luis, was he riding a BMX bike? Exactly what kind of “work” are these felons being tasked to perform?

“Camp San Luis Obispo employees were supervising Lopez at the time”, well apparently not very well. What were their consequences for not doing their job? My guess, none.

They tell me Mexico is nice this time of year.

This is a perfect example why chain gangs used to literally wear chains.


It’s PRICELESS! A “must have” for my wardrobe.

word on the street is aaron ochs is hiding him in his basement in exchange for “gimp” services.
