Tuan Tran, 50, apparently switched jail wristbands with an inmate who was scheduled to be bailed out of custody

19:57 |

Tuan Tran, 50, apparently switched jail wristbands with an inmate who was scheduled to be bailed out of custody, and he was mistakenly released from the George Bailey Detention Facility on Oct. 9, sheriff's Sgt. Russ Moore said.
Moore said information was not released earlier because Tran is not considered a threat and authorities wanted to pursue other options to locate him. Tran swapped wristbands with an inmate who has the same last name and same physical description. When the bail was posted, Tran was released instead of the correct inmate.
Authorities realized what happened a few hours later, when the mother of the man who was supposed to be released called the jail asking where her son was, Moore said.
Authorities say Tran is believed to be in the San Diego area. He was in custody awaiting sentencing on burglary and fraud convictions. He is described as Vietnamese, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
