We received a tip via crimestoppers with suspect info in regards to this case. The tipster provided vehicle, name and city where the suspect lives. Before any follow up could be done, the suspect committed another theft at a local store on this date.
Upon his arrest, an Ofc. familiar with the case said he thought it was the same person posted on FB. Pulling the crimestopper tip information, found that the arrested person and the information were the same, down to the vehicle. The suspect is being held on both charges, and is a suspect in a few others.
This information will be forwarded to Crimstoppers and request for processing the reward. Again, thanks to the community for providing the tip, and helping ID this person.
Theft of scooters from Wal-Mart.
