Inmate mistakenly released from Phoenix jail

Police are looking for a man who was mistakenly released from a Phoenix jail.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s detectives say 33-year-old Rocky Marquez knowingly took the identity of another inmate Monday in order to flee the Lower Buckeye Jail.

Marquez is facing charges of perjury, forgery, witness tampering, DUI, misconduct involving weapons and leaving the scene of an accident.

Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who comes into contact with Marquez should call 911.
