Suspect in Brownsville Cell Phone Tower Battery Thefts Identified

Posted: Updated:
BROWNSVILLE -

Police have identified a suspect in a case involving stolen batteries from cell phone towers.

42-year-old Juan Gerardo Garcia is wanted in the case.

Since the beginning of the year, several towers have been hit.

Officials said since the batteries serve as back-up power during outages, customers would lose service without them.

Brownsville police believe Garcia may be in the Pharr area.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Brownsville crime stoppers at 956-546-8477.
