PHOENIX (AP) - A man released from a Phoenix jail is back in custody for allegedly trying to steal a semi-truck from the facility.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials say 29-year-old David Spurlock is being held without bond after being booked back into the 4th Avenue Jail on suspicion of burglary.

Spurlock was arrested Wednesday for alleged possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia and released later that same day.

Detention officers say they had to escort Spurlock from the intake facility during his release because he didn’t want leave the jail.

They say Spurlock ran to a marked MCSO semi-truck and trailer that was backed into the jail loading docks. He disengaged the airbrakes but was unable to start it up.

Sheriff’s officials say Spurlock told them he planned to sell the stolen semi.
