SAN ANTONIO TX April 29 2017 — Police arrested a man and charged him with organized retail theft after a police surveillance operation at a local flea market uncovered a theft ring.
Ramon Rodriguez, 63, is accused of selling stolen goods at a flea market off Old Highway 90 and Commerce. Authorities confiscated a wide range of items from clothes to lawn equipment.
Authorities said Rodriguez bought the stolen goods from boosters and sold them at the flea market.
While Rodriguez isn't charged with stealing the items himself, authorities said they wanted to make it very clear that "it is a crime to buy stolen property."
