Jackass in jail

All nice and tidy, wrapped up and already in jail.

Just waiting.

Man accused of stealing guns from parked cop car

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (AP) -- Corpus Christi police didn't have to go far to examine the scene of one crime - the theft of guns from a police car.

Authorities said a semiautomatic rifle, handgun, Taser and ammunition were stolen Feb. 8 from the trunk of a car parked at the home of a SWAT team officer.

Then they discovered that fingerprints from the car matched a man who was already in custody.

Police said 27-year-old Jaime Jalomo had appeared in court the day after the car theft and pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance.

Jalomo was indicted Thursday on two counts of theft of a firearm.

A Nueces County jailer who wouldn't give her name said Jalomo was still in custody there Saturday. Jail records did not identify an attorney to speak for him.
