LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A 25-year-old man just released from the Alhambra jail was re-arrested Friday when he allegedly broke into a car in front of the police station, vandalized a gate, and stole some construction equipment from a high school while wearing a stolen parking enforcement uniform.

Leonardo Zepeda was arrested Friday morning and booked on suspicion of auto burglary, commercial burglary, and possession of stolen property, Alhambra police Lt. Jennifer Wiese said.

Zepeda was picked up on an unspecified warrant Thursday and was released early the following day.

He reportedly broke into a parking enforcement officer’s car, stole the uniform, and ripped out the stereo at around 5:45 a.m.

Police started getting reports of someone stealing concrete and chicken wire from a construction site at Alhambra High School about an hour later.

Zepeda was arrested there after allegedly breaking into a van at the school.

    If someone breaks into a car right in front of a police station after getting out, there is no such thing as rehabilitation. Still thinking about early releases?…..lol

    1. The Mad Man says:

      That was his early release! I guess when you are stupid and desperate for 3 hots and a cot you call it home.

      1. Said So says:

        He may have been trying to go right back in. During his release, he was like “No…I’m not going back to the streets”…lol

  2. Mo says:

    some people shouldn’t be in jail, some should never get out.

    Dude’s better off inside.

    I agree with you all, in jail he has meals, bed, some money, lots of friends, and most of all, lots of taxpayers contributing to his wellbeing.

  5. c-man says:

    Unfortunately, when and if he does get locked up, some pacifist liberal will say his sentence is too harsh. I am sure they checked his immigration status. Oh, probably not. We wouldn’t want to violate the right of any hispanics.

  6. Pedro says:

    I am sick and tired of all the racist’s comments on how the immigrants never contribute anything to the US society.

  7. ZakNee says:

    Not just one, but Countless Latinos, risk their lives in Mexico, and prison in the US everyday, just to deliver the purest cocaine to your front door.
