Authorities Looking For Santa Barbara County Jail Inmate Mistakenly Released

Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 1:46pm

Authorities are still on the lookout in Santa Barbara County jail inmate who was accidently released.

Eduardo Gonzales was in the main jail facility in Santa Barbara on a domestic violence charge, when he was mistakenly released Friday due to what the department called “procedural issues.”

The 24 year old man was ineligible for release because of a probation hold, as well as an immigration detainer.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Officials say it’s possible he might be in Southern Santa Barbara County right now.
