A Florida man released from jail in Fort Pierce this week was arrested just minutes later for stealing from a auto in the prison parking lot, authorities said.

After he was freed, however, cops became suspicious of Lewis as he was seen on surveillance cameras inspecting some cars at the jail's parking lot.

The 37-year-old had just been released Thursday from the St. Lucie County Detention Facility in Fort Pierce, Florida, where he'd been held on grand theft charges, according to an arrest affidavit. According to the affidavit, Lewis entered a silver vehicle from the driver's side and sat inside for more than two minutes. He walks up to a silver vehicle and sits inside on the driver's side for roughly two-and-a-half minutes. Deputies say he got out of that vehicle, walked from the front of the parking lot "all the way" to the exit gate, and repeated the process of lifting latches and peering into cars.

A perimeter deputy approached Lewis and asked him what he was up to, and the man claimed that he was 'waiting for his girlfriend'.

In the aftermath of a deadly clash between attendees and protesters, Trump said that there were "some very fine people" on both sides.

Deputy Neill Lettman reported that he confronted and questioned Lewis, who eventually handed him "a brown paper bag" with items stolen from the vehicle: an iPhone 7 valued at $1,000; four packs of cigarettes; a lighter; a debit card and driver's license; and $547 in cash.

Lewis exits the vehicle and checks several others before heading back towards the jail. Lettman discovered an IPhone 7, $547 in cash, a debit card, a Florida driver's license and four pack of cigarettes inside.

Lewis was arrested (again), this time on burglary, grand theft and possession of stolen property charges, and booked into the jail (again).
