Proper Evidence Collection by Patrol Officer Solves Robbery

Posted: Updated:
FROM THE CORPUS CHRISTI POLICE DEPARTMENT -

Occurred May 11th 2011 08:24  5401 Leopard Street Robbery

Corpus Christi Police have identified a suspect involved in the robbery of Pockets Sports Bar last year.  A male suspect who was wearing a ski mask had demanded all the money from the cash registers, but there was none as the business was not yet open for the day.  The bar employee called 911 and the suspect fled.

Senior Officer Charlie Williams responded and a canvas of the area revealed the suspect's shirt and ski mask near by. That evidence was carefully collected and submitted for DNA analysis.

In February of this year, CCPD detective Sergio Delgado was notified by DPS that the DNA from the items matched suspect Rene Manzano, 46. At that time Detective Delgado attempted to contact Rene Manzano to obtain a sample of his DNA for confirmation. Rene Manzano could not be located. As he is a registered sex offender, Rene Manzano is required to register his current address with local law enforcement. Detective Delgado drafted a warrant for the arrest of Rene Manzano for Failure to Comply with Sexual registration and he was located by the U.S. Marshal task force.

Once in custody a sample of Rene Manzano's DNA was taken and it was a positive match for the discarded mask and shirt from the robbery. Detective Delagado will be presenting the robbery case to the Nueces County District Attorney.
