Man re-arrested after escape from Pima County Jail

A man being held on felony retail theft and misdemeanor charges has been re-arrested after he escaped from the Pima County Jail on Tuesday. Noah Pizano, 23, escaped just before 1 p.m., following a morning court hearing. Authorities located him Wednesday morning at a home on the Southwest Side.

Pizano was taken into custody around 11 a.m. Wednesday in a residence in the 6300 block of South Hedgehog Drive, near South Cardinal Avenue and West Valencia Road, authorities said.

Details of how Pizano escaped from the jail were not released by authorities. He was described as wearing a black t-shirt and dark blue jeans when he absconded by a Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman.

Pizano had a court hearing Tuesday morning on charges of felony organized retail theft (a charge similar to shoplifting), as well as misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor false reporting and a number of misdemeanor warrants stemming from previous cases, PCSD Deputy Cody Gress said. Court records did not indicate if Pizano had left the jail for the 9 a.m. initial appearance in his case, or if the hearing had been held via video conference.

Pizano's previous cases have included disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing charges, vandalism, paraphernalia possession and shoplifting, court records show.
