SLO County Jail inmate walks away from work crew

A San Luis Obispo County Jail inmate in a work program crew at Camp San Luis Obispo walked away from his group Monday morning and was last seen in his jail clothes riding away on a bicycle.

Adilio Lopez, 35, was serving a sentence at the jail’s minimum-security Honor Farm for a burglary arrest in April.

At about 9:30 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office received a report that Lopez, who was performing general maintenance and landscaping under the supervison of Camp San Luis Obispo employees, had walked away from his detail, Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Cipolla said Monday afternoon.

He was last seen in his Honor Farm clothing — blue shirt and blue jeans — and riding away on a gray BMX bicycle. Cipolla said it was not clear where Lopez obtained the bike or in which direction he was headed.

Lopez is described as Hispanic, 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighing about 170 pounds.

Sheriff’s deputies, Camp San Luis Obispo personnel and the CHP are searching for him but are asking for the public’s help for information leading to his capture. Lopez has no known history of violence and is not considered dangerous.

Anyone with information about Lopez’s whereabouts is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 781-4550.
