A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing a parked tow truck after being released from a county jail across the street, said a report in the San Francisco Examiner. The man was released from the San Francisco’s Seventh Street jail on his own recognizance, a Northern Station police spokesperson said on April 12, when he crossed the street and stole a tow truck parked in front of the facility where cars towed from the city’s streets are impounded.

No further details were available from the report.
