Around 3am in the morning of September 18, 2019, Pinal County Sheriff’s deputies received information that 23-year-old Christopher Rios was attempting to break into vehicles in the Johnson Ranch neighborhood.
Deputies were able to locate the suspect but Rios became combative and resisted arrest when deputies attempted to take him into custody. Deputies were able to arrest Rios. In his possession were 2 stolen wallets, numerous credit cards not in his name, as well as a stolen expandable baton and folding knife. Deputies believe that Rios was checking for unlocked vehicles looking for credit cards and weapons.
“Christopher Rios was looking for easy targets where he could get in and out without anyone noticing,” said Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. “Please don’t leave valuables, especially weapons, inside your vehicle. Just locking your vehicle will prevent you from being an easy target.”
Christopher Rios was booked into the Pinal County Adult Detention Center and is being charged with three counts of burglary in the third degree, theft, resisting arrest, and aggravated assault on a peace officer.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
