Two arrested in auto theft

By CHRIS AGEE

Hours after receiving a stolen vehicle report, Mineral Wells police investigators arrested two individuals in connection with the crime.

According to a police spokesperson, a complainant in the 2500 block of Jacob Street reported a 2007 Chrysler Town and Country missing early the morning of May 10.

Reports indicate the vehicle was left parked at the location with its doors unlocked and keys in the ignition.

Officers located the unoccupied vehicle around 7 a.m. the same day and, based on physical evidence left at the scene, were able to identify two suspects.

Gunner Sage Pederson, 21, of Weatherford, and Christopher Alexander Crow, 23, of Mineral Wells, were arrested and each face one charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. A third man, Joseph Allen Cruz, 20, of Mineral Wells, was arrested at the same time on unrelated local warrants, police said.

Police also were kept busy during the past several days as numerous property crimes were reported across town.

Police received a burglary report last week in the 500 block of N.E. 7th Ave. The complainant told police a laptop computer and assorted food products were taken from the home. No evidence of forced entry was reported.

A 20-foot bumper pull trailer, valued at $3,000, was stolen from a residence in the 500 block of S.W. 22nd Street, according to a theft report filed last week.

An unknown subject removed the lock from a metal door to gain access to a building in the 1800 block of S.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Street, police said.

According to reports, a pressure washer and torch valued at a combined $3,000 were missing from the location.

A television valued at $250 was reportedly taken from a locked bedroom in a residence last week. According to reports, individuals were frequently entering and exiting the home in the 300 block of N.W. 3rd Street throughout the day.

Though there was no forced entry into the home, the bedroom door was forced open, resulting in the report being filed as a burglary.

A complainant in the 1300 block of S.E. 20th Street told police someone entered the residence through a back bedroom window and removed a tablet computer, phone, 55-inch television, DVD system and jar of spare change.
