FORT COLLINS, Colo. – A man who had just been released from the Larimer County Jail found himself back behind bars on Friday. 

Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith posted on Facebook that Alex Cano, 47, left the jail on foot and made it about a mile before he stopped and stole a bicycle from a carrier on top of a car.

A witness to the theft called 911 and Fort Collins police arrested Cano “within a short time,” Smith said.

Cano was booked on charges of theft and possession of burglary tools.
