ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man charged with stealing cookies can’t get out jail. That because a bail bond agent says the $5 bond is too high for him.

KOAT-TV reports (https://goo.gl/qtgosz) that Lucky Crowder is sitting in an Albuquerque jail at around $80 a day since no one will pay his $5 bond fee.

Bail bond agent Gerald Madrid says Crowder called for his help but the jail doesn’t allow a bondsman to post cash bail.

Court records show Crowder was arrested last month on shoplifting items worth less than $250.

He was later charged with biting a health care worker but that case was later dismissed by the district attorney leaving the $5 bond his ticket out of jail.

No attorney is listed for Crowder.
