After a recent spike in vehicle thefts in Fabens, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office (EPCSO) announced Tuesday the arrest of two suspects.
According to EPCSO officials, on June 19, 2020, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputies assigned to the Deputy Peter J. Herrera Patrol Station arrested two young men wanted in connection with vehicle thefts in the Fabens area.
As a result of the Sheriff’s Office deputies investigation, 17-year-old Jose Aguirre was arrested for an outstanding warrant for Unauthorized Use a Vehicle and Criminal Trespass.
Another 17-year-old, Ruben Ramirez, was also arrested for an outstanding warrant for Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle.
EPCSO says Aguirre and Ramirez were booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility.
Additionally, officials say that other two juveniles were also taken into custody in connection with the investigation and referred to the Juvenile Probation Department.
“The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public to lock their vehicles, trunks, or tailgates. An unlocked car is an open invitation to a thief, take the keys with you and close all windows,” EPCSO officials shared. “Remove, secure, or hide cellphones, stereos, valuables, wallets, purses, and packages.”
