A 47-year-old man who was jailed for having brass knuckles was back in custody Friday after he allegedly skipped out on a Los Angeles County offender re-entry program.

Glen Mullicane was taken into custody about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday after a deputy from the sheriff’s Lakewood Station stopped and questioned him in Bellflower, found drug paraphernalia in his possession and then discovered he had a warrant for his arrest because he had left the Male Community Reentry Program, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Mullicane, who was taken by state corrections agents to the California Institute For Men in Chino, would have been released from the program in March, but now his case will be referred to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for possible prosecution, officials said.

Mullicane was received by the CDCR from Los Angeles County on Aug. 18, to serve a two-year, eight-month sentence for making and possessing brass knuckles for sale, officials said.

The re-entry program is voluntary and affords offenders with less than 12 months left on their sentence to take advantage of “programs and tools necessary to transition from custody to the community,” according to a CDCR statement.

“The program links offenders to a range of community-based rehabilitative services that assist with substance use disorders, mental health care, medical care, employment, education, housing, family reunification and social support,” according to the CDCR, which pointed that “99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp or community-based program without permission have been apprehended” since 1977.
