Authorities are looking for one man linked to a Sprint store robbery that was caught on camera.
Oziel Hernandez is wanted by authorities after he posted bail for another robbery, but an investigation linked Hernandez to the Sprint theft.
Police originally arrested the following men in McAllen three days after their involvement in another burglary:- Joe Garcia- Heron Villalobos- Juan Jose Patino- Oziel Hernandez
Garciam Villalobos and Patino are sitting in the Hidalgo County Jail after they allegedly broke into businesses in McAllen, Edinburg and most recently a Sprint store in San Juan.
Surveillance cameras captured the crime occurring at store in San Juan just two weeks ago.
The men used a brick to break the glass door to get inside.
Investigators told Action 4 News the thieves were inside the store for no more than 20 seconds, but managed to get away with about eight cellphones and a tablet valued at nearly $4,000.
Police believe catching these suspects on camera is what led to a quick arrest.
Without the video surveillance, it TMs hard to pinpoint and actually say this individual was actually there unless witnesses come forward so the video surveillance itself says a thousand words," San Juan Chief Juan Gonzalez said.
Chief Gonzalez said its why their city ordinance requires local businesses to have security cameras on site.
San Juan police said these four young men are all about 19-years-old and are believed to be members of a newly formed gang.
Right now, Osiel Hernandez is out on bond, but he is wanted in connection with the Sprint store robbery.
Anyone who may know where he is at is asked to call Crimestoppers at 283-TIPS.
