Case Number: 1412290140
Corpus Christi Police responded to a call about a suspicious man in the parking lot of a bar located at 1402 Rodd Field Road checking vehicle door handles.
While officers were investigating this call an off duty CCIA police officer came up to them and said that while he was in his apartment located at 7218 S. Padre Island Dr. a male came knocking on his front door. The male asked the off duty officer, who was not in uniform, if he could leave some items at his apartment because some men were trying to jump him. The off duty officer took a PlayStation and a laptop computer from the suspect and the male left on foot.
The off duty officer took the items over to the officers who were investigating the call in the parking lot of the bar. While they were getting a description of the suspect, the off duty officer received a call on his cell phone from friends in his apartment saying the suspect had returned and wanted his property.
Officers went to the apartment and took Adrian Reyes (07/27/1993) into custody.
While the suspect was still trying to convince officers that the items were his, the real owner just so happen to walk by the officers and he noticed his laptop sitting on the hood of the police unit. The laptop was verified through login to belong to the man and the Play Station belonged to him also.
The suspect was arrested and charged with felony theft.
