LANCASTER – The local parole office needs your help in locating eight at-large parolees, considered dangerous and a threat to the community, authorities said Thursday morning.
“They’ve already been convicted more than three times — every single one of them — for felonies, some for sex offenses and some for weapons charges,” said Larry Dorsey, California State Adult Parole Operations Supervisor. “We want to get them in custody because we do consider them to be dangerous if left out in the community.”
The men pictured in the top row were three of the 20 GPS-monitored paroled gang members considered “the most dangerous here in the Antelope Valley,” Dorsey said. Since absconding from parole, they have been placed on parolee-at-large (PAL) status, Dorsey added.
The five parolees pictured in the bottom row are dangerous sex offenders who either cut off their GPS-ankle monitors or never reported to the local parole office after being released from custody, Dorsey said.
“These five individuals have been deemed [some] of our worst here in the Antelope Valley,” Dorsey said. “There are a few repeaters that have absconded numerous times, and again, we’re looking for the public’s assistance to locate these individuals.”
Anyone with information on these parolees is urged to contact Larry Dorsey at the Antelope Valley parole office at 661-729-0530, ext. 265 or 266.
GANG MEMBERS IN VIOLATION OF PAROLE
In late July, authorities issued an urgent plea for help in finding Romie Seals, who had allegedly cut off his GPS monitor and tossed it into the desert (read more here). Officials said Seals was a meth-addicted gang member with a criminal history that included firearms, making him a danger to society. After two weeks on the run, Seals was captured in early August (read more here).
“He recently was released due to the current laws and he never reported to the parole office, so again, we placed another warrant out for his arrest,” Dorsey said Thursday.
Seals is a 33-year-old male, with black hair and brown eyes, who stands 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs around 130 pounds.
Seals is on parole for resisting an officer with force and violence. He has absconded from parole numerous times since his release in 2011 and is a heavy drug user who steals to support his habit, Dorsey said.
“He’s definitely somewhere here in the Antelope Valley, possibly Mohave or in the Palmdale area,” Dorsey said.
William Collin is 24-year-old GPS-monitored gang member with numerous parole violations. He’s been on the run since May, when he either cut off his GPS-monitor or the device went dead, Dorsey said.
“His last location was right around 9th Street East and Avenue R,” Dorsey said.

Collin is 5 feet 10 inches tall, with black hair and brown eyes, and weighs around 190 pounds.
