CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
A man faces charges this morning after a crime spree on the Island.
"We had a patrol officer notice a vehicle that had an expired registration on it, so he conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle," Art Treviño, Corpus Christi Police Lieutenant said. "During his investigation, he realized that there was possibly a lot of stolen property in the bed of the truck. As he was doing that the driver took off running."
After a short pursuit police caught the man around three Sunday afternoon.
