The trailer was removed from the backyard of the residence, and it was learned from the Victim that multiple pieces of equipment were still missing from the trailer.

SAPD’s Anti-Crime and Gang Unit assisted with conducting surveillance on the residence in an attempt to locate the remaining stolen property. Officers received information that items were being removed from the rear of the residence and being placed into the back of a pickup truck. The truck was then observed leaving the residence at which point SAPD’s Patrol Division attempted to conduct a traffic stop on it. The Truck then fled the traffic stop and led officers on a short vehicle pursuit before returning back to the residence it had departed from. The suspect then led officers on a brief foot pursuit before being taken into custody by responding officers. The suspect was identified as Armando Villareal (46yoa) and it was learned that multiple pieces of the Victim’s stolen equipment (as well as other suspected stolen property) were located in the bed of the pickup truck that Villareal had fled from. Multiple pieces of property were then seized from the scene with the assistance of SAPD’s Crime Scene Division.

SAPD’s Criminal Investigations Division responded to the scene and ultimately charged Villareal with Theft of Property >= $30k<$100k, Evading Arrest/Detention in a Motor Vehicle, Evading Arrest/Detention on Foot with previous Convictions, and Multiple City Warrants.
