Update by San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office

On 9-21-18, the Sheriff's Office received a report that wanted parolee at large Larry Harvey was spotted outside a residence in the 100 block of South 7th Street in Shandon.

Harvey had been considered armed and dangerous and residents were advised to lock their doors, secure their vehicles, and to not leave keys inside their vehicles. When Deputies arrived on scene, Harvey ran away. He led Deputies on a foot chase through the nearby riverbed, into backyards, and through a home before being caught near the intersection of Calle Carmelita and E. Centre Street in Shandon. Harvey was arrested without incident. A booking photo is not available at this time, since Harvey is still in the process of being booked into County Jail.

Wanted San Luis Obispo Parolee Arrested

By The Associated Press PENSACOLA, Fla. — Sep 23, 2018, 8:39 AM ET /////A Florida man who stole $600 worth of cigarettes from a convenience store has been sentenced to 20 years in state prison.////// A jury in Pensacola convicted 48-year-old Robert Spellman of burglary and grand theft in August. Authorities say Spellman took 10 cartons of cigarettes from a stock room in the store manager's office last December. He was sentenced Friday./////// The Pensacola News Journal reports that Spellman had 14 felony and 31 misdemeanor convictions prior to the cigarette theft, which qualified him as a habitual felony offender. That led to the lengthy 20-year prison sentence imposed Friday by an Escambia County judge.

Mental health problems lead to drug abuse. Drug abuse leads to getting fired or quitting your job. Hes forever lost in a broken system

I agree with you. If the system was not broken, Mr. Harvey would not have become a thief or burglar. He most likely would have been a teacher, doctor, or maybe even a scientist. Instead, he is a wanted parolee.....whatever that means. Broken system = broken wanted thieves/burglars.

This dude looks like a complete white boy wannabe and not some gang banger from the Surenos! Check out his name...Larry Harvey...sure doesn't sound anything like any of my Homies from So. Mexico. Especially any who might have been affiliated with the SUR-13. Just saying.

White boy, yea. Wannabe, I doubt it - this dude is a parolee and has blatantly Southern tattoos. I would bet money that he put in work for those tattoos.

Yes Thank You so much because we get to read all these comments blaming you I remember in the OLD DAYS when the 3 STRIKES law was abused by the system and back door deals were made. Who really started releasing violent criminals back on the streets I was a republican once no longer..It's all Bread and Butter insured jobs no lay offs it's all money the business of Justice.

Nice, so kids have to go on a lockdown and residents be fearful because of one sociopath? I think some people can be rehabilitated, but this dude - not so sure. Look at his face. Says it all. Scum.

...possibly he is eriously constipated, or putting on his gameface for his upcoming Pillow Biting championship bout at Corcoran.

We are creating a whole generation of these kids. So far the cops have kept most of us safe but every now and then a good person's life is affected by them. Anybody have any solutions to what is going on?

That is an idiotic idea that goes against every notion of human rights. In case you don't understand this, think of it in different terms: torturing people (tattoo removal is a very painful and tedious process) while depriving them of artwork that is a part of their life and possibly very expensive (I have multiple tattoos that cost over $1000) just so they won't have to be locked up indefinitely? Yea, real sensible.

Nope! It is the cops and our justice system that have created multiple generations of people like this. When you have an entire system dedicated not to justice or the good of society, but to the thoroughly debunked idea that locking as many people up for as long as possible keeps society safe. As much as I advocate for rehabilitation, there are plenty of people for whom rehabilitation will do absolutely nothing because they have been thoroughly destroyed after being trapped for decades in our violent and unjust criminal justice system. Open your dmn eyes!

SUR 13: "Sureños ([suˈɾe.ɲos]; Spanish: Southerners)‍, Sur 13 or Sureños X3 are groups of loosely affiliated gangs that pay tribute to the Mexican Mafia while in U.S. state and federal correctional facilities. Many Sureño gangs have rivalries with one another, and the only time this rivalry is set aside is when they enter the prison system. Thus, fighting is common among different Sureño gangs even though they share the same common identity. Sureños have emerged as a national gang in the United States."

These are very bad dudes. Some very open-minded people may claim that they can be rehabilitated. I am dubious of that claim. Short of locking them up indefinitely, there doesn't seem to be any good (currently) legal solutions.

WOW he looks like such a nice man, they should just let him go. I'm sure he will add a lot of good to our society :)
