Case Number: 1503040026
Corpus Christi Police have arrested a man they believe dumped more than forty tires behind a business located in the 2700 block of Morgan Avenue on March 4.

Officers arrived after an employee of the business called to report that he had video evidence of someone dumping tires behind Bonilla Plaza.

Officers were able to view the video and they saw a man exit a white truck that had pulled behind the business. The suspect is seen pulling several tires out of the bed of his truck and unloading them in the alley.  The suspect then leaves after he empties the bed of his truck.

After an investigation, Officers determined that the tires came from a shop in the 3200 block of Baldwin Boulevard. The owner of the shop told Officers he had hired a man to dispose of the tires.

Officers were able to identify the suspect, Jose Carrillo (05/06/1964), and an arrest warrant was issued for him on December 1 by Judge Joe Benavides. The suspect was located at a home in the 1200 of Elgin Street later that same day.

The Corpus Christi Police Department wants to warn suspects that we are using social media, surveillance cameras and targeted patrols to stop this type of illegal dumping.  If anyone witnesses tire dumping, please call police immediately.
