Hours after being released from a Florida jail, a suspect decided he was going to break into a correction officer’s vehicle in the parking lot — for a mere $4, police said.
Kim Jung Su has been in the Brevard County jail since Oct. 9. Then, the Florida Highway Patrol responded to a vehicle crash. It was determined that Su was driving a vehicle reported stolen out of Hollywood, Florida, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
Su was also a wanted fugitive in New York with a warrant for grand theft of a motor vehicle and trespass.
But officials in New York later called Florida to say they would not pursue the charges, according to the sheriff’s office.
With no local charges, deputies released Su from Brevard County jail this week.
He then waited for four hours in the jail lobby and public parking area, according to the sheriff’s office. Then, around 2:40 a.m., Su broke into a personal vehicle in the jail complex parkin lot. Deputies saw Su go into the vehicle, and there he took $4 in cash and change.
Deputies arrested Su, again, and he was charged with burglary, petit theft and resisting arrest without violence. He is now being held on $11,000 bond.
