Inmate Mistakenly Released from Bexar County Jail

It's happened again! For the second time in 24 hours, a Bexar County Jail inmate has been released by mistake.

Erica Morales, 32, was released from the jail, where she was supposed to be held on a drug charge, 'as a result of an error by booking staff.'

Deputies immediately fanned out, checking addresses on file for Morales and 'saturating' the area around the jail.

She was arrested driving down Commerce Street not far from the jail, and taken into custody without incident.

Sheriff's officials say 'incorrect bond documents' were attached to Morales' booking file, which may have contributed to the mistaken release.

Just yesterday morning, a man was released without being transferred to the Haven for Hope homeless shelter, as required under his release agreement.
