Case Number: 1606160012
A 39 year old male called Corpus Christi Police after his ex-wife rammed the rear of his truck with her SUV while he was on a date with another women.

The ex-wife found the man and his date traveling on Gollihar Road, near South Staples Street.  The man told Officers that he was driving his 2005 Dodge truck down the street with a 25 year old female passenger inside when his ex-wife saw him.  The ex-wife, driving a 2003 Ford Expedition, began to ram her SUV into the rear of the man’s truck several times.

When the man pulled into a parking lot in the 4100 block of South Staples Street to confront his ex-wife, she ran into his truck again with her SUV and then fled.  No one in the truck was injured.

The ex-wife did not get far.  She lost control of her SUV and crashed her Ford Expedition into a fence at 4629 Carroll Lane and then into a tree in the 3500 block of Harold Street. After the crash, the female exited her SUV and took off walking on foot from the area.

Officers caught up to the female driver, Melissa Lopez (09/27/1982), at her home in the 4500 block of Kirkwood Drive.  She was arrested for aggravated assault, a felony offense, for intentionally ramming her car into her ex-husbands vehicle.

Location: 4000 Violet Road
Offense: Aggravated Assault
P.C.  22.02      Second Degree Felony

Case Number: 1606160015
A 36 year old man called Corpus Christi Police after the ex-boyfriend of a female he is now dating came to his apartment, located in the 4000 block of Violet Road, armed with a gun.

Officers arrived at the man’s home and were told that he heard someone banging on the windows of his trailer but when he looked out, he could only see a white truck outside.  The man also heard someone banging on the front door of his trailer, but he did not look out the window facing the front door because he was afraid. He told Officers that his girlfriend of two months has an ex-boyfriend that drivers a white truck.

Neighbors told Officers that they saw a man banging on the trailer and it appeared to them as if he broke two windows on the side of the home.  They also said the man outside was armed with a handgun.  They saw the man bang loudly on the front door, and then step back and point the handgun in the direction of the front door waiting for someone to answer.

When no one came to the front door, the man outside left in his truck but was located by Officers on Violet Road near Interstate 37.

Officers stopped the 2011 Dodge truck and after an investigation they determined that the driver, Jose Luis Garcia (02/11/1973), was intoxicated.  They also found two loaded handguns in the center console of his truck.

The suspect was charged with aggravated assault, a felony offense, unlawful carrying of a weapon, a Class A misdemeanor.  He was additionally charged with driving while intoxicated and criminal mischief for breaking the trailer windows.  Both of those charges are Class B misdemeanors.

Location: 13900 Northwest Boulevard
Offense: Burglary
P.C.  30.02      State Jail Felony

Case Number: 1606160003
Corpus Christi Police responded to an alarm at a business, located at 13941 Northwest Boulevard, and found the side door to the restaurant was open.

When Officers went inside they found a cash register thrown on the floor broken with coins around it. Officers determined that the suspects made entry into the business after the bottom latch on the side door was left unlocked.   The door was then easily pushed in by the suspects breaking the dead bolt.

The owner of the restaurant estimated that the cash register would cost $280 to replace and that nearly $60 in cash was taken from the register after it was broke open.

At this time, no suspects have been identified.

Offense: Burglary
P.C.  30.02      State Jail Felony

Case Number: 1606160018
Corpus Christi Police responded to an alarm at a business, located at 8151 Leopard Street, and found a front window to the restaurant broken out.

When Officers went inside they found two cash registers on the front counter that were open but did not contain anything inside of them. Officers also located an ax laying on the floor.  They believe this was used by the suspect to break out the glass window and make entry into the building.

At this time, it does not appear as though anything was taken from the business, but the owner estimated that it would cost $300 to repair the broken window.

Officers wear able to view camera surveillance video from the restaurant.  It shows a male suspect, 30 to 40 years of age, with dark hair, glasses, a beard or goatee enter the business through the broken window.  After looking through the empty cash registers, he leaves out the same window.  He was last seen wearing a white shirt and khaki colored shorts.

At this time, no suspects have been identified.
