Aggravated sexual assault captured in San Antonio after erroneous release
Comal County Sheriff’s Office: ‘Protocols in place were not followed’
An aggravated sexual assault suspect who was mistakenly released from the Comal County Jail Tuesday was caught in San Antonio Wednesday, according to the sheriff’s office.
Jose Luis Aguilar-Mayorquin, 36, walked out of the jail in blue jeans and a sleeveless gray shirt after an apparent booking error, according to a news release.
“Preliminary investigation shows that the protocols in place were not followed,” according to the news release.
Authorities tracked Aguilar-Mayorquin down in San Antonio, taking him into custody in the 1700 block of Lee Hall.
The sheriff’s office thanked U.S. Marshals, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and New Braunfels police for their help in the case.
