Felicia Rangel Dominick Torres
On 3/31/2020 at approximately 3:35am, Deputy Curtis Johnson was on patrol in the 15000 Blk of State Highway 123 North when he observed a subject dressed in dark clothing run from behind the Texaco Convenience Store at the intersection of Ridge Drive and State Highway 123 North. Deputy Johnson turned around to investigate and he also observed a suspicious vehicle parked on a private lane behind the business. Upon making contact with the vehicle he found it occupied by a female subject. He also observed several burglary tools on the floorboard of the vehicle. The female was detained at that time.
Several deputies arrived in the area and a security check of the business was conducted. Deputies found a broken window in the back of the business and it was apparent a burglary had occurred.
While the scene was being processed by deputies, a call came in for a suspicious person walking on State Highway 123 North and Braune Road. A male was located walking along the roadway who matched the description of the subject Deputy Johnson had seen running from the business.
It was determined that the male suspect and the female suspect knew each other and that they were actively burglarizing the business when interrupted by Deputy Johnson.
The female suspect was identified as 19 YOA Felicia Rangel. She was arrested for Burglary of a Building and Unlawful Use of Criminal Instrument. She was taken to the Guadalupe County Jail and was held on bonds totaling $15,000.00.
The male suspect was identified as 20 YOA Dominick Torres. He was arrested for Burglary of a Building and Unlawful Use of Criminal Instrument. He was taken to the Guadalupe County Jail and was held on bonds totaling $15,000.00.
