A Maryland man must have loved his stay at Rappahannock Regional Jail considering he was back mere hours after being released on Sunday.

On May 7th at approximately 3:22 a.m. Deputy E.R. Houde responded to Rappahannock Regional Jail, located at 1745 Richmond Highway, for a report of a vandalism. Jail staff advised one of their vehicles, as well as, the magistrate’s office door had its window smashed. Once Deputy Houde reviewed surveillance cameras, it was clearer than a window cleaned with Windex what transpired.

At 1:11 a.m. a suspect was released from the jail and was seen leaving the area. He would return a short time later, this time with a hammer. The suspect started his hammer time by attacking one of the jails vehicles. He would then break the magistrate’s office door before fleeing the scene.

Deputy J.J. Suh was able to locate the suspect on Hope Road. When confronted about the shattering incident, the suspect denied that he broke anything. He changed his answer after being informed the cameras caught the entire incident. During his conversation with deputies, the suspect advised “I kinda broke this other window”. One of the windows at T.J. Cleaners, located at 2142 Richmond Highway, had also been smashed.

The suspect was charged with two counts of misdemeanor destruction of property, as well as, felony destruction of property. He was transported once again back to Rappahannock Regional Jail where he was held without bond and away from glass objects.
