Wrongly released inmate back in custody

........................................................................................................................................................................................

An inmate inadvertently released from an Albuquerque jail is back in custody.

Authorities said Taylor Roberts was located Wednesday night at a hotel after being wrongfully released from the Metropolitan Detention Center, KOB-TV reported.

A hotel manager said Roberts checked in earlier in the day and paid for an entire month’s stay.

Jail officials say employees made an error reading court documents, leading to them releasing Roberts.
