Surveillance video that aired on KSAT 12 News during a Crimefighters report has helped San Antonio police identify a suspect in a burglary and theft at a West Side tire shop.
Juan Casillas, 28, was booked into the Bexar County Jail Wednesday on charges of burglary and theft.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated that Casillas is accused of stealing an ATV on Oct. 28 from El Compa Tire Shop in the 700 block of Cupples Road.
Police said the same person then returned an hour after the theft and broke into the business itself.
A few days later, the owner of the tire shop contacted KSAT 12 News, asking the station to air video of the crime, which was caught on surveillance camera. The video ran during a KSAT Crimefighters segment.
According to the affidavit, detectives began receiving phone calls soon after the segment aired from relatives of Casillas. Police obtained a warrant for his arrest in mid-November.
