SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Sheriff's Office has tracked down an inmate that was erroneously released from the Bexar County Jail last month.

The Sheriff's Office said Jesse Gonzales, 40, was released April 8 after the jail received release orders for another inmate with the same name.

Gonzales was found Friday evening, just hours after the Sheriff's Office first released information about his release.

Gonzales was booked into the jail Sept. 24 on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The inmate that was originally supposed to be released was let go April 9.
