Bexar County At least two teens have been arrested and a third detained after a security video showed a car thief a teen with an AK rifle in a Northwest County neighborhood of Bexar, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Javier Salazar told members of the media on Friday that the BCSO’s Organized Crime Unit worked with Northside ISD police to identify several suspects seen in the security video, which was recorded at approximately 3:45 a.m. Thursday in Shaenfield Court, which small court. sac near Shaenfield Road and Loop 1604.

In it, two people can be seen going from driveway to driveway, apparently trying to find unlocked cars. Two vehicles can be seen in the background, a pickup truck and a pickup truck. Closest to the CCTV can be seen holding what looks like an AK-style rifle as he inspects the door of a parked car.

A deputy from the BCSO told KSAT on Thursday that the same crew appeared to have tried their luck at several apartment complexes in the area, riding in at least three cars.

Salazar said investigators believe the four-man crew consists entirely of juveniles caught in a videotape Thursday morning. However, he said he wouldn’t be surprised if they were part of a larger, more organized ring, and that investigators learned that the group was advertising stolen cars for sale on social media.

Salazar said the video garnered a lot of attention on social media and in the news, and the appearance of the assault rifle “clearly gave us a sense of urgency.”

Salazar said he was concerned that an unsuspecting resident might stumble upon the crew.

One of these little thugs will kill an innocent civilian, that is our fear. “It’s what keeps us up at night,” Salazar said.

By Thursday night, the BCSO had monitored a home near Valley Hi and Loop 410, Salazar said. Representatives noted what they believed to be the same suspects operating what turned out to be a stolen car with stolen license plates.

When MPs tried to stop the car to stop traffic, Salazar said the driver took off and led the MPs in a high-speed chase. Eventually, three or four people were rescued inland around West Military Drive and Merry Oaks Drive on the southwest side.

The car had stolen ID cards and the mail inside. “Bills and so on,” Salazar said, “may have been used to resell identities.”

“I mean, these kids are a big crime wave in their own right,” Salazar said.

The deputies did not find the gun in the car. And although Salazar said a San Antonio police helicopter pilot saw one of the teens with a gun when they were rescued, deputies couldn’t find him.

Salazar said the stolen car the teens were traveling in had a gun on it when it was stolen.

Representatives eventually arrested two suspects, both aged 16. Salazar said he believes one of them was a teen wearing AK shoes seen in the security video.

None of the teens arrested Thursday night appeared to immediately face charges of car burglaries Thursday morning in the North West Side.

According to a BCSO spokeswoman, one of the detained teens faces charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle, evading arrest or detention – on foot and in a vehicle, and not revealing his identity while an arrest warrant is in place.

The second teen also faces charges of evading arrest or detention on foot and in a car.

Salazar said one of the teens also had tattoos “consistent” with the Mexican Texas mafia, but it was not clear if he was a member or if he “worships these men so much that he mimics their tattoos.”

A BCSO spokeswoman later told the agency that a third teen who investigators believe was part of the car burglary crew was arrested on Friday afternoon. The charges against him were not immediately available.

The car robberies occurred two days after the mass shooting at Robb Primary School in Ovaldi, which left residents feeling uneasy.

Steve Canto, whose camera recorded the scene Thursday, is a Marine Corps veteran. He told KSAT on Friday that he hadn’t slept the night before.

“I was up all night watching video cameras, watching windows, and being very vigilant,” Canto said.

After hearing about the first two arrests, he said he was relaxing a bit.

“I should be able to try to sleep better. Right, you know, one can only hope, right?” Kanto said.

The Northwest neighborhood of Bexar County is unsettled after a video of a missile carrying a rifle surfaced.
