LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Diboll man who had apparently been on a car burglary spree may have picked the wrong one to break into when a Department of Public Safety officer found his burglarized early Sunday morning.

Lt. Mickey Hadnot of Lufkin DPS said the suspect stole a purse with some credit cards in it from the vehicle that was parked at his residence.

"He started using the credit cards at service stations," Hadnot said. "Video showed him waving through his friends and letting them get gas on the cards."

Hadnot said investigation revealed two of the people who were using the cards were at a residence on the 200 block of Hoskins Street, so he arrived and arrested Yesenia Marin, 29, of Lufkin, and Ricardo Perez, 30, of Lufkin. During that arrest, Alvaro Luiz Tovar, 25, of Diboll, drove by and authorities arrested him, Hadnot said.

According to a Lufkin Police report, officers assisted Hadnot in Tovar's arrest. During the arrest, Tovar was found to have "knuckles," a prohibited weapon.

Tovar is charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and prohibited weapon. He was also arrested on outstanding traffic warrants. Marin and Perez are each charged with engaging in organized criminal activity.
