Case Number: 1505180137
A 42 year old male called Corpus Christi Police after he saw his stolen vehicle being fueled up at a gas station on Airline Road.

The male victim had not made an official report that his 1995 Ford Bronco had been stolen, because he could not locate the license number of his vehicle.  He did tell officers that it had been taken while it was parked at an apartment complex located in the 6300 block of Meadow Vista Drive sometime on May 10.

The man said he had been out of town and when he returned, he thought the vehicle had been towed because it had been parked on private property.  The man said not knowing the vehicles registration number had prevented him from being able to find the Bronco or report it stolen.

When the man saw the Bronco being fueled up on Airline Road Monday afternoon, he followed it and called police.  Officers were able to stop the vehicle in the 200 block of the Crosstown Expressway.

They arrested the driver, David Wayne Shelly (07/31/1970), for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.  Inside the Bronco, officers located several pills that were classified as dangerous drugs. Also in the vehicle were numerous Texas driver’s licenses, identification cards, credit cards, and checks belonging to various individuals. Officers also recovered a set of brass knuckles and a handgun.  The suspect also had an outstanding warrant out for his arrest for forgery.  The suspect was additionally charged with forgery, unlawful carrying of a weapon, possession of dangerous drugs and possession of a controlled substance.
