CORPUS CHRISTI–The Corpus Christi Police Department Gang Unit arrest three gang members wanted for violent crimes in the city.
Officers contacted a 17-year-old victim who reported her white 2007 Pontiac G6 and cell phone were stolen at gunpoint by a Hispanic male on Wednesday.
The Hispanic male was last seen wearing a black ball cap, a black long-sleeved shirt, and blue jeans as he drove off in her vehicle. The victim was uninjured during the robbery.
Shortly thereafter, dispatch broadcasted a B.O.L.O for a beer run which occurred at the Stripes Convenience Store at 666 Airport Road involving a white Pontiac. Gang Officers in the area observed the vehicle and attempted to pull it over.
The driver refused to stop and a pursuit ensued. The driver pulled over at 800 Eleanor and bailed out of the vehicle along with the front passenger. The driver eluded Officers as they jumped over fences and ran through backyards in the area of 700 Francisca.
The front passenger Esteban Vasquez, 30, refused to stop running and threw a beer bottle at the officer as he fled. Vasquez was quickly tackled to the grounded and arrested.
He was transported and booked in the city jail. Vasquez was charged with Evading Arrest.
The next day Gang Investigators worked diligently throughout the day and obtained three warrants for the arrest of known gang member Aaron McGraw.
He was arrested and booked at the city jail. Aaron McGraw, 31, was charged with three Outstanding Nueces County warrants for Aggravated Robbery (Bond Set at $100,000.00), Evading Arrest in a Vehicle (Bond Set at $25,000.00), and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle (Bond Set at $10,000.00).
