ABERDEEN, Wash., May 31 (UPI) -- Police in Washington state said a man released from custody was arrested again when he allegedly stole the jail's handcuffs and tried to pawn them.

Investigators said the 43-year-old Aberdeen man, whose name was not released, was arrested on an outstanding theft and trespassing complaint Tuesday and taken to the city jail, where he was processed and later released, The Daily World, Aberdeen, reported Thursday.

Police said corrections officers later noticed the handcuffs the man had been wearing were missing and they soon received a call from a pawn shop owner who said a man had attempted to pawn the cuffs.

The man was found and arrested on a charge of trafficking in stolen property, police said.
