An East Side man identified as 31-year-old Daniel Rodriguez is accused of targeting Target stores in a series of shoplifting cases that began in April.
San Antonio police said someone stole electronics on at least five different occasions from various Target stores throughout the city.
They said the suspect is seen with on surveillance cameras each time, loading up on items that included TVs, cell phones, and DVD players, and walking out of the stores without attempting to pay.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated that in several cases, witnesses reported seeing the shoplifter drive off in a white van with the words, “Spa Pro,” on the side.
Investigators said they found out that Rodriguez had been stopped in the past, while driving a similar van, the affidavit stated.
They said witnesses also identified him in a photo lineup, the affidavit stated. Rodriguez was arrested Thursday on a charge of theft.
