A Washington man had a brief respite from the Spokane County Jail on Saturday before finding himself back behind bars within hours.

Marcus Goodman, 31, walked out of the Spokane County Jail in Washington at 10:08 p.m. on Saturday night after being booked and released on an unspecified felony charge. 

He then secured himself a spot back in the same jail just minutes later when police identified him as the primary suspect in a 10:28 p.m. carjacking less than two miles from the jail.

"Officers contacted a 16-year-old female whose vehicle had been taken," reported Officer Nick Briggs in a release obtained by Front Page Detectives. "The victim told officers a stranger had approached her, indicated they had a gun, and demanded the female’s car."

That started an hours-long search for Goodman, who was eventually apprehended just before 1 a.m. when a patrol officer recognized the stolen car. He was once again placed under arrest and booked for second-degree robbery. 

Goodman had yet to be released as of Monday afternoon, with his bail set at $15,000.
