SAN ANTONIO – A 36-year-old man was back in custody Thursday after he was mistakenly released from the Bexar County Jail.

Gilbert Lopez was released Wednesday due to a clerical error, Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesman Johnny Garcia said.

After discovering that Lopez was missing, deputies established communication with him and placed him into custody around 5 p.m. Thursday after locating him at the intersection of Huron Street and Flanders Avenue.

Lopez will be charged with possession of a controlled substance, Garcia said.
