About 15 minutes later, they were notified that Tarin has removed his GPS device. 

He was found early Monday at around 10:30 a.m. in the Monterey Park area. Tarin was taken into custody without further incident by CDCR officials and taken to LA County Jail for booking, they said. 

Tarin is described as standing 5-foot-6 and weighing around 155 pounds. He has hazel eyes and brown hair and was last seen wearing a gray t-shirt and gray sweatpants. 

He was received from Los Angeles County in October 2023 after he was sentenced to 32 months for attempted robbery, which was a second-strike offense. He was housed at the MCRP in Los Angeles County since April 8, officials noted. 

Local law enforcement assisted in locating Tarin, CDCR officials said. 

Anyone who sees Tarin or who has more knowledge on his whereabouts is urged to contact 911 or local law enforcement.
