SAN ANTONIO — Police said they've caught a man that stole computer accessories from Walmart stores in Round Rock and San Antonio.

Samuel Solano, 18, was arrested Monday on charges of theft and engaging in organized crime.

According to his arrest warrant, Solano and two others stuffed computer accessories into a large trash can in August.

Two of the alleged thieves then carried the trash can to the garden center of the store while Solano pulled a car around and took off with the stolen goods.

San Antonio police were tipped off by Round Rock police when they arrested the two other suspects. They are accused of pulling off the same stunt at a Walmart store in Round Rock.
 
Solano was booked into the Bexar County Jail on a $35,000 bond.
