Christopher Reyna, Escaped Prisoner, Caught By Cops During Traffic Stop
It's not exactly like catching John Dillinger, but cops have reportedly nabbed an escaped prisoner with a long history of doing bad stuff.
Again, Reyna is no Al Capone. But he's a bad pretty dude. If stealing Lego sets from Walmart to sell them on the side is to be considered pretty bad.
Reyna has been a bit of a rapscallion, facing several felony charges, and a handful of misdemeanors.
In 2004, he was charged with bringing a knife to Port St. Lucie High School, as well as intent to sell marijuana.
In 2005, it was a battery charge.
In 2011, Reyna was charged with grand theft after he was busted for allegedly being involved in stealing over $1000 from a Bruno House of Chocolates.
He also apparently stole hundreds of dollars worth of copper from a Home Depot, because ... well, it's tough to figure that one out.
Reyna also ganked a mattress pad and a couple of Lego sets from the local Walmart.
Apparently, he tried to sell the things he stole for cash, according to authorities.
U.S. Marshals had been searching a hard target area of every warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in Port St. Lucie since Wednesday.
He was finally nabbed at the McDonald's at U.S. 1 and Jensen Beach Boulevard in Jensen Beach at 2:30 Thursday afternoon.
According to police, Reyna and several suspected accomplices had been staying at a home in the 1000 Block of SW Payne since he escaped.
