SAN ANTONIO -

Lourdes Lara-Victoria, a 34-year-old Northwest Side woman accused of stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of cellphones from a business, could face additional charges.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that San Antonio police are investigating several similar burglaries.

According to that affidavit, investigators believe Lara-Victoria shot out the front window on a Sprint Touchstone store near Loop 410 and Marbach Road early on the morning of Jan. 12.

Surveillance cameras captured a woman and man then walking out with a number of cellphones, the affidavit stated.

Police estimated the loss at about $41,000 worth of phones.

A few weeks after the break-in, police issued an appeal for help from the public through a Crime Stoppers report.

The report featured surveillance photos of the male suspect. Police have not identified him yet.

However, the affidavit stated that investigators discovered that Lara-Victoria had been using one of the stolen phones, including one occasion where she was sitting in the back seat of a patrol car.

Police said there were several other business burglaries around the time of the cellphone store break-in that also involved windows that had been shot out.

Among them were a Planet Fitness gym in the 11200 block of Portranco Road, a car lot and several Dollar General stores.

At the time of the crime spree, police said Lara-Victoria was working as a manager at a Dollar General, the affidavit stated.

It also stated that Lara-Victoria’s car was found abandoned at the scene of one break-in after a neighbor interrupted the crime, the affidavit stated.

Police interviewed Lara-Victoria about her car being found there, and they said she could not offer a reasonable explanation, the affidavit stated.

She was arrested at that time on an unrelated warrant, the affidavit stated.

Charges related to the cellphone store burglary were filed against her Tuesday.
