Occurred Wednesday, July 11, 2012, 00:08, 6701 Everhart Road, Burglary of a Building

Two men were arrested Wednesday accused of stealing $20,000 of air conditioning metal from the Coastal Haven Senior Apartments.

Corpus Christi Police were called by a witness who saw two men disassemble exterior air conditioning units at the Coastal Haven Senior Apartments near midnight. The two men ran from the scene in different directions until one of the men, Raymond Dubberke, 43, was stopped by a police officer.

A uniformed Corpus Christi Police Officer on his way home in his personal vehicle after having finished a shift had his portable radio on and heard the call. The off duty police officer saw the second suspect, Robert Curry, 40, cross Saratoga Boulevard at Player Street. Curry was stopped by the off duty officer until a marked patrol car could take Curry back to the scene of the crime.

Evidence was collected and the estimated value of the components taken from five apartments was valued at $20,000. The air conditioning components were recovered and returned to the apartment management.

Duberrke and Curry were arrested for Burglary of a Building, a state jail felony punishable by up to 2 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine, and for Theft of Metal, also a state jail felony.
