Detectives Release Images Of School Burglary Suspects

 Date: 06/01/2015       3:55 AM
Location: 4200 Calallen Drive
Offense: Burglary
P.C. 30.02       State Jail Felony
Case Number: 1506010030
Corpus Christi Police Detectives have released camera surveillance images of suspects they believe broke into Calallen High School two days into the summer break.

Officers were investigating another burglary call at Magee Elementary School, located at 4201 Calallen Drive,  on June 1, when they became aware of several suspects seen walking around inside Calallen High School, 4001 Wildcat Drive.  Officers responded to the high school and saw that the suspects had gained entry to the school through a back shutter near the cafeteria office.

While inside, the suspects damaged items in a small room and several administrators offices were broken into and ransacked.

As officers were attempting to secure this scene, they saw four suspects exit the rear of the high school and get into a dark colored suburban. The suburban had its lights off and left going through a field in an attempt to escape. The suburban came out from the field at a car wash, located at 14058 Northwest Boulevard, with its lights off and drove through the front chained gate of the business. The suspect vehicle was last seen traveling west on Northwest Boulevard.

Officers do believe the suspect vehicle had extensive damage done to the front of it when it crashed through the chain.

Surveillance camera images show several suspects inside of the high school.

Detectives believe that both, the elementary school and high school burglaries and the destruction to property are related.

Detectives need your help identifying any of the suspects involved in this crime.  Anyone with information about this case should call the Corpus Christi Police Criminal Investigations Division at 886-2840. Anyone who would like to keep their identity secret and provide information to the Detectives should call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS (8477) or submit the tip online at http://www.888TIPS.com.

Be Aware When You Carry Money Bags P2

The Corpus Christi Police Department wants to remind citizens to be aware of their surroundings when they are carrying money from banks.

While there has not been a reported case of the “jugging” type robberies since May 14, we want to warn citizens not to become complaisant.  We cannot be sure that these violent thieves have stopped targeting our city or if our citizens have made it too difficult for them to commit this crime.

Our department does have strategies it has implemented to address these crimes but we also ask that citizens do their part in protecting themselves.

The offenders are known to target mainly female bank customers after they leave a bank with a deposit or money bag. They park in the bank parking lot or very close by.  They are usually in newer model cars with paper license plate and tinted windows.   They watch the front door or commercial lane of the drive through looking for business related transactions. The suspects then follow the victims back to their business, or a location where they park their vehicle, and physically assault them and steal the money bag.
