A San Luis Obispo County Jail inmate is facing additional charges after attempting to escape from a local hospital, officials say.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office says Ashley Marie Moss, 30, complained of a nose bleed Jan. 9 and was taken to a nearby hospital.

While there, sheriff's officials say she attempted to escape through a restroom ceiling panel.

Deputies located Moss within feet of the removed ceiling tile and took her back into custody, officials say.

Jail logs show she was first booked into county jail Jan. 3 by Atascadero Police for felony charges of burglary, grand theft and criminal conspiracy.

She now faces new charges related to the alleged escape attempt.

Bail is set at $120,000.
