On Tuesday, Amoroso escaped police custody and stole an unmarked Chevy Impala from the fleet maintenance building. A night shift count that took place around 9:30 p.m. found that Amoroso, who was a trustee inmate in the facility, was missing. Another search found the vehicle was missing, and they assumed the two were connected.
Overnight, Sheriffs found Amoroso at the Budget Inn in West Melbourne off of 192 and took him back into custody.
Amoroso was in jail since July 25th on a failure to appear warrant for a charge of grand theft.
Amoroso now faces additional charges of escape and grand theft motor vehicle. He is made his first appearance on Thanksgiving from the Brevard County Jail Complex.
