BEXAR COUNTY, Texas (ValleyCentral) — Investigators are trying to determine whether the motive in the theft of the Ruffles Lays truck was chewing gum or a simple love of Ruffles chips, deputies say.
Jeff Jetin, 27, was arrested Tuesday after allegedly stealing a Ruffles Lays truck and evading arrest, authorities said.
On Tuesday, Converse police and Bexar County sheriff’s deputies were sent to a Walmart store located in the 8000 block of FM 78 in Converse in connection with a car theft.
Shortly thereafter, police found a Ruffles Lays truck turning onto Cavendish Court, not far from the original theft site. Jethin jumped out of a moving truck, causing it to crash into a pickup truck, authorities said.
As a result, the pickup was sandwiched between the Ruffles truck and the garage door of an apartment building.
Jetin was running on foot and jumping over fences in a residential area, officials said.
After what deputies described as a “protracted pursuit,” Gethin was arrested without incident and taken to the Bexar County Jail, the sheriff’s office said.
He is charged with stealing a vehicle and evading arrest/detention using a vehicle. Gethin’s bail was set at $30,000.
