LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – A man out of jail on bond for burglary charges is back in jail after he and his father tried to steal a county vehicle, authorities said.

George Morris Pylant Jr., 29 — also known as “Booger,” according to the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office — is charged with breaking and entering a vehicle and first-degree attempted theft. His father, George Morris Pylant Sr., 49, faces the same charges.

Limestone County authorities said they found a county-owned Ford F-350 with a damaged ignition where the two men tried to start the truck. Authorities identified them  from security footage.

The Pylants were picked up at a local motel, interviewed and arrested.
