|Inmate Mistakenly Released From Sacramento County Jail Apprehended in Sacramento|
|By California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation|
SACRAMENTO — SACRAMENTO — State prison inmate Alamar Houston, who was mistakenly released from Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) custody June 13, was apprehended early Thursday morning by agents from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Special Services Unit and SCSO Major Crimes Bureau.
Houston was sent out to court in Sacramento County from CDCR to face charges of vehicle theft and receiving stolen property last month. He had been housed at Sacramento County Jail while in the custody of local authorities.
CDCR had an active detainer on Houston, so that he would be returned to CDCR custody after the court proceedings. Instead, on June 13 after Houston’s court case was dismissed, he was mistakenly released by SCSO.
Houston was located in Sacramento late the night of June 15, and was taken into custody without incident around 12:15 a.m.. He was returned to Deuel Vocational Institution (DVI) in Tracy, where he had been housed until his transfer to Sacramento County Jail.
Houston was received by CDCR from Yolo County on Jan. 12, 2017, to serve a 35-year sentence for vehicle theft, evading a peace officer while driving recklessly, hit-and-run causing injury to another person, and assault with a deadly weapon.
