Associated Press Release

ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A woman earned a trip back to jail for stealing a tow truck from a man who tried to help after her rental car stalled shortly after she was released from house arrest.

Thirty-seven-year-old Angela Estrella faces multiple charges following her arrest on Wednesday. She remained in the Volusia County Jail early Friday.

According to arrest reports, a judge gave Estrella permission to remove her ankle monitor and she rented a car. It broke down on Interstate 95 and a passing deputy called a tow truck.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/11iGd0d ) reports Estrella took the rig when the driver turned his back. However the truck had a GPS, which tracked her moves. She was arrested at a north Florida gas station a short time later. She's charged with grand theft.
