Suspect Runs/Steals Vehicle
04/22/2013

A Guymon Police Officer was dispatched to Walmart Thursday evening in reference to a follow up for cases on an individual allegedly using stolen credit cards to purchase items at the local retail store.
According to a report obtained by the Guymon PD, the officer was advised the individual was in the store and was attempting to purchase items in the electronics department.
A Walmart employee identified the individual as someone who allegedly purchased items the previous day with a stolen credit card and upon the officer’s contact with the suspect, he gave a false identity.
The suspect, who has been officially identified as Cristino Humana Garcia, 25, led the officer to a vehicle he allegedly claimed to be his own, but in fact was someone else’s vehicle. He also reportedly told the officer’s he was unable to locate his identification card.
Garcia was to follow the officers back to the station for questioning, but claimed he left his car keys inside the store, so an officer walked him back inside to pick up his keys. The keys were not located, according to the report.
Garcia then reportedly told officers he would just ride with them to the station, but as they were opening the door for him to get in the patrol unit, Garcia took off on foot.
The report states one of the officers was able to catch Garcia in the ditch by Northwest 24th and Beaver and he was placed in handcuffs to be put in the back of the patrol unit.
The officers discovered a stolen checkbook in Garcia’s pocket and informed him he was under arrest for possession of stolen property and placed him in the patrol car.
The officers discovered the keys provided were for a different vehicle than they were lead to by Garcia. They were able to locate the correct vehicle and were able to see three to four iPads in the back seat.
As the reporting officer was walking back to his patrol unit, he was advised by a Walmart employee that Garcia was getting away. The officer observed the rear passenger window of his patrol unit to be kicked out and Garcia was gone.
An unknown male advised the officer Garcia had run southbound to James Street and the officer advised other units Garcia was fleeing on foot while still handcuffed, the report says.
During the time officers began searching for Garcia, they were advised from dispatch that they had just received a 911 call for a stolen vehicle.
The vehicle, registered to Theron Landess, was a blue 2007 Mini Cooper.Officers issued a BOLO (be on the look out) to surrounding agencies.
As of Friday afternoon, the vehicle had been found in Liberal, but Garcia remained at large, according to a spokesperson at the Guymon PD.
Authorities believe Garcia may be in the Garden City or Liberal area.
If anyone sees Garcia, who is described as a Hispanic male wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans, and was handcuffed at the time that the incident took place - they are encouraged to call the Guymon Police Department at 580-338-6525 as soon as possible.
