Corpus Christi shoplifter runs over security agents foot with car www.privateofficer.com
Corpus Christi police were called Friday afternoon to a department store in the 5400 block of South Padre Island Drive where security provided them a license plate number for the woman’s Pontiac sedan.
Security officers said the woman stole a cap and fled, striking an officer with her car in the process. The security officer suffered minor injuries, police said.
A police officer recognized the name of the vehicle owner and police went to the woman’s home and arrested her on suspicion of robbery, a second-degree felony.
The woman was taken to the Nueces County Jail. Her bail had not been set by a magistrate late Friday. The woman has theft convictions from 2004 and 2005, according to Nueces County court records.
