ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Following a manhunt Wednesday morning, Thomas Trevino, the suspect wanted for ramming into an Abilene Police Department (APD) cruiser has been arrested.
Thomas Trevino, 30, of Abilene faces charges of Aggravated Assault of a Peace Officer, Theft of a Motor Vehicle and Evading Arrest.
According to APD, the suspect was taken in just before 1:00 Wednesday afternoon, located in the area of Oak and South 14th Streets.
APD credits the arrest to assistance from Surveillance Apprehension and Tactics Team (SATT), Narcotics, and Patrol.
APD Public information officer Rick Tomlin says the vehicle that was stolen was idling at the time. Allegedly warming up while unattended. This is a practice they want to advise against especially as the temperature begins to drop.
“The danger of it getting stolen is probably pretty low but it only takes that one time for it to happen for you to regret that decision.” Tomlin says.
