An alleged car thief-burglar-drug user was arrested Friday by Brownsville

police after a chase in Southmost.

The caper began with a Ford truck allegedly stolen Thursday night from the 900

block of San Pedro Lane, said Police Sgt. Abraham Delgado. It ended with a

search warrant finding stolen merchandise.

Police spotted the truck cruising the Tony Gonzalez Park area at about 10:40

a.m. Friday. With police following, the driver soon jumped out leaving a

15-year-old boy, a 16-year-old girl and a small bag of marijuana, police said.

The driver ran for a couple of blocks, vaulted over a chain-link fence and hid

under a house at the 2900 block of Elena. But police chased and arrested

18-year-old Jose Miguel Gonzalez of Brownsville, Delgado said.

Gonzalez allegedly was in possession of stolen property, said police who soon

discovered that Gonzalez had allegedly traded stolen goods for the marijuana.

Police then conducted a search warrant on a house on the 2900 block of

Carolina Street, where Gonzalez allegedly made the illicit trade.

A VCR and a pair of stereos were recovered, Delgado said.

He took the truck and used it to commit burglaries, Delgado said.

Gonzalez was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, felony theft of

a motor vehicle, burglary of a habitation and possession of marijuana. The two

teenagers were charged with a felony theft of a motor vehicle and possession

of marijuana.
