FLORESVILLE -- Rafael Alfaro III, 23, of Floresville is being held in the Wilson County Jail on a total of $34,000 bond, according to jail records, on a slew of charges stemming from a March 15 burglary and subsequent vehicular pursuit. A second suspect was still at large as of press time March 19.

According to Investigator Roland Treviño of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, sheriff’s Deputy Travis Beck was dispatched at 7:29 p.m. March 15 to assist the Floresville Police Department as officers attempted to capture suspects after an attempted burglary on C.R. 302 just east of Floresville. The property owner reported seeing two men attempting to break into a locked gate and gave chase, pursuing the pair as they drove onto C.R. 117, then onto F.M. 1303. The property owner reported that at one point during the pursuit, one of the suspects allegedly fired a shotgun at him.

As deputies closed in, Treviño said one of the suspects threw a shotgun into the San Antonio River; it was later recovered. The passenger in the fleeing vehicle then fled on foot into the Riverside Ranch Nudist Resort, as the driver -- identified as Alfaro -- continued on. Alfaro allegedly bailed out from the vehicle near the intersection of C.R. 128 and C.R. 163 in Saspamco, where sheriff’s Deputy Crystal Zoeller apprehended him after a foot chase.

When deputies took an inventory of Alfaro’s vehicle prior to its being impounded, they found items including bolt cutters, pry bars, prescription drugs, and part of the recovered shotgun.

Alfaro is charged with evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, unlawful use of a criminal instrument, attempted burglary of a building, deadly conduct, possession of a dangerous drug, criminal trespass, driving without a license, criminal mischief causing less than $50 damage, and possession of a prohibited weapon.

Treviño said an arrest warrant will be issued for Alfaro’s accomplice, whose name is not being released. He is described as a 30-year-old Hispanic male standing 5 feet, 5 inches tall, and weighing 185 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes, and is believed to be a Floresville resident. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535 or Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636).

In an unrelated incident, police in Floresville are investigating a March 10 burglary at the Crawford Pharmacy on U.S. 181. According to Lt. Chad Clark of the Floresville Police Department, officers were dispatched at 1 a.m. after the burglar alarm had been activated. When officers arrived, they found that a window was shattered. A search of the building did not yield a suspect, Clark said.

Store employees reported that an estimated 50 tablets containing hydrocodone and acetaminophen were stolen. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the Crawford Pharmacy burglary is asked to call the Floresville Police Department at 830-393-4055 or Crime Stoppers of Wilson County.

The description of the escapee fits a large precent of the population so the police department must have many calls. Needs a name!

"fled on foot into the Riverside Ranch Nudist Resort,..." ....Responding Officers later stated that the suspect was easy to spot. He stuck out like a sore thumb.

If 1+1 still equals to 2x1, then the prescriptions found were most likely from the pharmacy! Leaving the nudist part alone! Lol

The accomplice should have been easy to spot in the nudist resort. He was the guy with clothes on carrying a flat screen TV set.
