SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police arrested a man after they say he stole a saw from a construction site in his second of two robberies.

Police said Jake Villarreal, 28, is accused of holding up a gold and silver dealer on San Pedro Avenue on Monday.

Investigators said he then pulled up to a construction site at Beacon Avenue and Wildwood Drive. He asked workers at the site about a job and then took off with a saw.

The victims in both cases said he drove away in a black or dark gray Chevy Tahoe.

The gold and silver dealer had Villarreal's phone number, which police used to track him down.
