P.C. 30.02       State Jail Felony
Case Number: 1508030048
The manager of pawn shop, located at 3700 Baldwin Boulevard, called Corpus Christi Police after a suspect gained entry into that business through the roof with a sledgehammer and ladder sometime overnight.

Officers arrived and were told that the suspect used a ladder from the rear of the pawn shop to gain access to the roof. Once on the roof, the suspect used a sledge hammer to break a hole in the ceiling, and then put a ladder in the hole and climbed down to the sales floor below.

Once inside the business, the suspect stole several lap top computers which were loaded into a duffel bag. The suspect then left by climbing back up the ladder and exited through the opening of the roof. On the roof, Officers recovered the sledgehammer, a crowbar and a pocket knife.

At this time Officers have not identified the suspect involved in this case, however they are investigating whether or not a similar type of burglary that occurred on August 1 at the Times Market, 3418 Baldwin Boulevard, is related.

A store employee arrived at work about 9 AM that day and found that a suspect had made entry into the store from the roof. Once the suspect had removed shingles and cut a hole in the plywood, he made entry into the store. The suspect then stole nearly $2,000 worth of cigarettes, and took cash and coins out of the two registers. The suspect then climbed back out of the roof to leave.

Both of these cases remain under investigation.
