Alleged cookie thief stuck in jail on $5 bond

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- An Albuquerque man charged with stealing cookies can't get out jail.

That's because a bail bond agent says the $5 bond is too high for him. KOAT-TV says Lucky Crowder is sitting in jail, costing local taxpayers about $80 a day, since no one will pay his $5 bond fee. A bail bond agent says Crowder called for his help but the jail doesn't allow a bondsman to post cash bail.

Court records show Crowder was arrested last month for shoplifting items worth less than $250. He was later charged with biting a health care worker, but that case was dismissed by the district attorney.
