According to police, a South Whitehall officer had spotted a vehicle with tires inside leaving the car dealership about 2:30 a.m. Sept. 14. The officer tried to get the driver to stop, but the driver allegedly turned off the vehicle lights and sped off. A pursuit followed.
Police have said the people in the vehicle threw tires with rims out the windows as police gave chase. The vehicle eventually crashed, and Gallo-Navarro was taken into custody. A second person remained at large, police said at the time.
On Wednesday, police said, a Reading police officer recognized Cintron-Castro, found at a Reading playground, as the man wanted by South Whitehall police. Cintron-Castro allegedly ran off but police eventually caught up with him, according to a report in the Reading Eagle.
The stolen tires and rims were valued at $10,950, police have said. Police said damage to vehicles at the car dealership was estimated at $8,025.
