SAN ANTONIO - After a two-hour search, deputies located the missing inmate inside the Bexar County Detention Center’s ceiling Thursday morning.
Sheriff Javier Salazar said Steven Lee Guidry was in the jail’s mental health facility and apparently used his mattress to reach the vent and climbed inside.
Salazar said they were sure Guidry never actually escaped the jail’s building, but called for reinforcements from the San Antonio Police Department and San Antonio Fire Department as a precaution.
The 32-year-old inmate is considered violent and is jailed on an aggravated assault and drug charges, according to Sheriff Salazar. HE could now face attempted escape charges.
