Search for Offender Who Ditched Court-Ordered GPS Tracking Device

A convicted car thief ditched his GPS tracking device and vanished in the Barrio Logan area of San Diego, prison officials confirmed Thursday.

Israel Hernandez, 27, was last seen leaving the back door of a Male Community Re-Entry Program facility at 4:20 a.m.

California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officials (CDCR) officials say Hernandez left his court-ordered GPS device in a nearby parking lot.

Hernandez is described as 5-feet, 8-inches and 207 pounds. He was sentenced last year to a two-year, eight-month sentence for vehicle theft, according to officials.

Hernandez was scheduled to be released on probation in March 2018.

Anyone who sees Hernandez or has any knowledge of his whereabouts should immediately contact law enforcement or call 911.
