The Nevada Department of Public Safety has received numerous media calls on the department's role in regard to the parole status of Phillip Garrido. Garrido is currently in custody at the Contra Costa County Jail in Martinez, California for the alleged kidnapping of Jaycee Lee Dugard on June 10, 1991. The following information is being provided from the records of the Division of Parole and Probation as they relate to Phillip Garrido.
Phillip Garrido was arrested in Reno on November 23, 1976 on charges of kidnapping and rape of a South Lake Tahoe woman and for transporting his victim over the state line to Reno, Nevada, where he held her captive in a storage unit. Garrido was convicted on March 9, 1977 and began serving his 50 year sentence on June 30, 1977, in Levenworth, Kansas on the federal kidnapping charges.
