Case Number: 1401300001

Corpus Christi Police responded to a single vehicle crash at the 2700 block of Soledad in which the operator of the white 2007 Chevrolet Uplander ran from the van prior to law enforcement arrival. A32 year old man told Officers he is the owner of the van and the van was taken from him by force by a man he knows at the 2800 block of Guadalupe Street. Officers went to the 2800 block of Guadalupe Street and found the 38-year-old suspect identified by the 32-year-old man as the suspect. Officers gathered information from witnesses who saw the man who was involved in the crash, and the 38-year-old man did not match that description of the driver of the van involved in the crash. The Officers did find a pistol with the 38-year-old man and observed the serial number scratched off. The Officers began an investigation for the tampering with the serial number on the firearm and released the 38-year-old man. Officers continue to investigate the robbery complaint from the 32-year-old man in which the van was taken by force. No arrests have been made.
