      A Reynosa man is facing criminal charges in the Rio Grande Valley after he was arrested for allegedly driving a stolen pickup truck into Mexico.

      McAllen police charged 21-year-old Ricardo Zavala Miranda on two counts of theft by appropriation on Friday.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that Miranda was caught heading into Mexico driving a stolen Dodge pickup truck at the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge.
