Report: NM inmate steals money walking out of jail

Oct 23 2012

SANTA FE, N.M. — A New Mexico inmate on his way out of jail was quickly thrown back in after authorities say he stole another inmate's cash then treated himself to a hearty lunch.
The Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office told TV that 20-year-old Frank Rodriguez-Tapia swiped $80 in cash while a guard's back was turned as Rodriguez-Tapia was walking out of jail. The money belonged to another inmate who was just coming into the Santa Fe jail and going through booking.
Police say Rodriguez-Tapia was supposed to report immediately to the electronic monitoring office, but bought lunch instead at Blake's Lotaburger. He later admitted to the theft, turned over the remaining $67 and was sent back to jail.

An expensive lunch:

He could have eaten at home with his family (shown above) although his mother is a nag;*This may not be his biological family.
He could have borrowed money from the new inmate;
He could have robbed Blake's Lotaburger.

Rodriguez-Tapia is now facing new larceny charges.
It was unclear if he had an attorney.
It was also unclear if he had a brain.
