CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Police didn't have to go far to examine the scene of one crime — the theft of guns from a Corpus Christi police car.
Authorities said a semiautomatic rifle, handgun, Taser and ammunition were stolen Feb. 8 from the trunk of a car parked at the home of a SWAT team officer.
Then they discovered that fingerprints from the car matched a man who was already in custody.
Police said 27-year-old Jaime Jalomo had appeared in court the day after the car theft and pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance.
Jalomo was indicted Thursday on two counts of theft of a firearm.
A Nueces County jailer who wouldn't give her name said Jalomo was still in custody there Saturday. Jail records did not identify an attorney to speak for him.
