A Redwood City man who allegedly broke into the Maple Street Correctional Center in Redwood City Aug. 13 and was arrested by a correctional officer pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanors in court Wednesday, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office said.

Prosecutors said that Moises Dona Robles, 35, claimed to be getting away from a man with a gun and did not know he entered into a county jail but admitted to being under the influence of meth and alcohol. A correctional officer saw Robles sitting in the lobby and thought he was an inmate before recognizing him as a trespasser in street clothes and stopping him.
