Steven Wright was caught Monday morning in Boulder City.

Richard Galvez was shocked to learn he shared a wall with Wright at Nevada Inn.

“He kind of kept a low profile. He wouldn’t come to the door,” said Richard Galvez. “I tried to give him towels and everything was from inside the door. He wouldn’t answer the door. He’s like I’m okay man, leave them there by the door and I was like getting suspicious,” Galvez continued.

Wright should have been behind bars but was mistakenly released from a Los Angeles jail nine days ago.
