Two Inmates Escape Sonoma County Jail

Serving time for drug and alcohol-related offenses and should be considered dangerous, say authorities.

Sheriff’s deputies are on the lookout for two men who escaped Sonoma County Jail on Wednesday night.

The men, who were serving sentences on drug and alcohol charges at the North County Detention Facility near the Sonoma County Airport, scaled the security fence around 9:30pm and fled the area, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

A third suspect was apprehended by deputies.

The inmates have been identified as Serefino Uriel Gonzalez-Reyes, 42, and Rene Solorio Leon, 22, both from Santa Rosa. Gonzalez-Reyes is 5’8, weighs 200 pounds, with black hair and a goatee and mustache.

Solorio is 5’5, weighs 200 and has black hair and a mustache.  

Both inmates were last seen wearing standard issued jail clothing consisting of a blue denim style button shirt and blue jean pants with jail markings and should be considered dangerous. Anyone who spots them is asked to notify law enforcement immediately by calling 565-2121.

This is what happens when our state decides to leave it up to the individual counties to incarcerate felons. None of us will be safe, and our "justice system" will essentially be undermined. There is no way that our county was prepared for the responsibility of taking over the jailing of inmates from the state prisons, especially with the obvious inability of the local jails to even keep prisoners from climbing the fences and leaving.
