Prisoner Escapes from Fire Work Camp Near San Gabriel River

Corrections officers were looking Monday for a minimum-security inmate who escaped from a conservation camp overnight on the east fork of the San Gabriel River, in the mountains above Azusa.

Kevin Shann, 40, was last seen during a routine security check at 10:25 p.m. in his assigned dorm at the Julius Klein Conservation Camp, located at 22550 East Fork Rd. He was reported missing an hour later, according to a statement from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Shann was serving a four-year sentence on a first-degree burglary conviction and was scheduled to be released in 2016, the statement read.

California Highway Patrol officers were also assisting in the search.

Shann is 6 foot 3 inches tall and weighs 197 pounds. He has brown eyes and brown hair.

Officers asked anyone who sees Shann to call the Julius Klein Conservation Camp commander at (626) 910-1213 or the Sierra Conservation Center watch commander at (209) 984-5291, ext. 5439.
