Location: 1600 Lawnview Street
P.C. 30.04 Class A Misdemeanor
Case Number: 1605240004
A Corpus Christi Police Officer on patrol observed a man, wearing all dark clothing, riding a bicycle in the 1600 block of Lawnview Street, without a headlight.
When the Officer stopped the man on the bicycle she saw that he had pieces of broken glass all over his shirt and minor cuts and scratches on his hands and right elbow. While the man was looking for his identification card in a back pack he was carrying, he pulled out several $5 bills that also had blood on them.
During the investigation, the Officer found a prescription pill bottle that did not belong to the man inside of the backpack he was carrying. The pill bottle had several pills in it.
The Officer also became aware that there was a call from a homeowner in the 500 block of Naples Street reporting a burglary to his vehicle.
After an investigation it was determined that the suspect on the bicycle had threw a brick into the front passenger side window of a 2011 Ford Escape belonging to the homeowner at 530 Naples Street while it was parked in the driveway of his home. Once the window was smashed, the suspect stole $40 cash in $5 bills that was sitting on the center console inside his car. The Officer believes this is when the suspect cut his hands.
When the Officer went to investigate the name on the prescription pill bottle that the suspect had in his possession she found that the suspect had also entered an unlocked Dodge truck parked in front of 363 Naples Street and took the pill bottle from inside. Officers returned the prescription pills to the owner of the truck.
The suspect, Jacob Ramirez (06/15/1998), was arrested and charged with two counts of burglary and possession of dangerous drugs, all Class A misdemeanors.
