Suspect Arrested in Van Theft Investigation

CORPUS CHRISTI - Police have arrested Juan Carlos Rodriguez, 48, as a suspect in the theft of a minivan from the Walmart Service Center lot this past Saturday.

Authorities say Crime Stoppers tips lead officers to a home on Horne Road where they were able to arrest Rodriguez and recover the stolen Dodge Caravan.

Rodriguez was already wanted for violating his probation on a theft charge. Online court records show he has several past arrests for theft.

On Saturday, a 66-year-old man left his van in line for an oil change at the Walmart in Parkdale Plaza. The keys were still in the ignition when the suspect hopped behind the driver's seat and took off.
