Corpus Christi Police arrested 41-year-old John Whittington (11/3/1972) for Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle Tuesday when an observant Officer noticed the vehicle on Horne Road.

A Corpus Christi Police Officer responded to a vehicle crash at Horne Road and Kostoryz Tuesday and happened to notice a trailer with unusual features in the driveway of a home on the 2900 block of Horne Road. The Officer worked the crash scene and then heard on the Police radio that a trailer was recently stolen from the 14000 block of Jackfish with the same description as the vehicle seen on Horne Road. The Officer finished the crash report and investigated the trailer at the 2900 block of Horne Road and discovered the trailer was the same which was reported stolen.

The Officer discovered evidence to identify Whittington as the person responsible for the crime, so the Officer arrested Whittington and delivered him to the city detention center.

The trailer was returned to the owner.
