Christopher Brown reportedly impersonated someone else

A man who had just been sentenced to a multi-year prison term walked out of jail in downtown Los Angeles last night. Authorities are still searching for him.

Christoper Lee Brown, 37, reportedly impersonated another inmate and walked out of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility’s release area around 10 p.m., according to KTLA. Brown had been sentenced earlier that day to four years and eight months in prison for stealing computers from a medical center that contained the data of hundreds of thousands of patients.

Public Information Officer Mike Parker of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department posed this tweet with photos of the suspect on Thursday afternoon:
