Florida man arrested for burglarizing cars in jail parking lot moments after being released

A man was arrested in Florida for allegedly breaking into cars in the jail parking lot moments after he was released, according to police.

Michael Casey Lewis, 37, was originally arrested on charges of grand theft Thursday morning, the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Lewis had just bonded out of county jail and been released Thursday when deputies said they spotted him behaving suspiciously.

“After being released, deputies in the parking lot of the jail observed Lewis pulling car door handles and learned he had just burglarized several cars right there at the jail,” the statement said.
