Bexar County Deputies say they have thwarted an attempted escape from the Bexar County Jail, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Officials say Sergio Huerta, 33, who was being held on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a controlled substance was not seen in his assigned cell block in the jail.
Deputies searched the block and determined that Huerta was not there.
The alarm was sounded, and Huerta was located in a cell commonly used by inmates who are awaiting release.
He was returned to a secure area of the jail, and charges of Attempted Escape were added to his rap sheet.
Its a badly needed win for the jail, which has struggled with inmate suicides in the past several weeks.
