A convict who walked away from a Kearny Mesa halfway house turned herself in to the Los Angeles Police Department Friday, authorities reported.
Lorraine Roman, 49, surrendered at the LAPD Rampart Division about 4 a.m., according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
Roman was convicted of burglary last year in Los Angeles County and sentenced to a four-year term. She fled a “Custody to Community Transitional Reentry Program” housing center in the 3000 block of Armstrong Street in San Diego on Saturday, officials said.
Roman’s case will be referred to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of additional charges, according to the state corrections department.
The re-entry program allows eligible inmates to end their sentences in alternative environments in lieu of remaining in state prison.
