Two minimum-security inmates escaped from the Delta Conservation Camp just outside of Suisun City this morning, a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation spokeswoman said. The men, Eduardo Hernandez, 29, and Jose Padilla, 32, both of Los Angeles County, were last seen around 4:30 a.m. in their housing unit, spokeswoman Margaret Pieper said.
The 124 inmates at the camp help Cal Fire respond to fires in Sonoma, Lake, Napa and Solano counties and assist with vegetation and facilities cleanup operations. Padilla was committed to the CDCR on April 15 and was scheduled to be paroled in December 2015. He was convicted of making terrorist threats, causing corporal injury to a spouse and stalking.
He is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds, with brown eyes, black hair and a medium complexion. Hernandez was committed to the CDCR on July 21, 2005, for carjacking and was scheduled to be paroled in June 2016. He is 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighs 125 pounds and has brown eyes, black hair and a medium complexion. Both men were wearing blaze orange-colored jeans and shirt with “CDCR” on the back. The men do not pose a serious threat to the public, and their route of travel is unknown, Pieper said.
