Another arrested in supply thefts

Police arrested two more men Sunday in connection with an ongoing investigation into property stolen from building supply stores in several cities.
Det. Sgt. Mike Hopson said one of the men arrested, Garcia Caceras, 35, of Garland, was later released. The other, Garland resident Teolifo Contreras, 35, is still in custody on a charge of theft of property greater than $20,000.

“We got a call Sunday about some trucks parked at (Surplus Supply in Dallas),” Hopson said. “We set up surveillance on it, and a couple of box vans and a passenger van.”

Attempts to follow the box vans failed as officers lost sight of the vehicles in Sunday traffic, Hopson said, but the passenger did not get away. Using information obtained about a vehicle Contreras drove to the scene, police were able to identify him and tie him to the suspected thefts from Nov. 9 at Blazek Building Supply in Ennis.
