Inmate Erroneously Released from the Santa Barbara County Jail Public Assistance Requested

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is requesting the public's assistance to help locate an inmate who was erroneously released from the Santa Barbara County Jail this morning, January 24. Shortly after 6 a.m., 24 year old Eduardo Guzman Gonzalez was released from jail due to procedural errors.

Gonzalez was booked on a domestic violence charge and was ineligible for release due to a probation violation hold and immigration detainer. Once the erroneous release was identified, the Sheriff's Office notified local law enforcement agencies and immediately conducted an investigation in an attempt to locate Gonzalez. The Sheriff's Office has not been able to find him and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Gonzalez has ties to the Isla Vista and Santa Barbara areas. If you see him, you are asked to not make contact with him, but call 9- 1-1 immediately. To leave an anonymous tip, call 805-681-4171.

A thorough review of our internal policy is underway to ensure similar events do not occur again.
