In the video, Sheriff Chody credited Crime Stoppers for the tip that led to the arrest of the suspect.
The Sheriff’s department originally believed that the suspect was from San Antonio because he had hired an attorney in San Antonio to return some of the stolen items to the police. A tip from Crime Stoppers led WilCo detectives to the suspect who was living here in our area.
