Corpus Christi Police arrested 19-year-old John Fernandez (12/1/1993) for theft Saturday at a shopping center on South Padre Island Drive.

Corpus Christi Police responded to a complaint of a shoplifter at the mall and arrested Fernandez for theft after he had left the store with clothes without any effort to pay for the merchandise. Officers discovered Fernandez had several electronics which were stolen from two different locations and had not yet been reported.

Fernandez was delivered to the city detention center, the electronics were placed in evidence lockers, and investigations to the additional thefts continue.
