Police catch man with slew of outstanding charges
On Thursday, March 7 a man claiming his truck had run out of gas wasn’t enough to justify 53-year-old Eddie Paz’s excuse for changing his mode of transport to a stolen bike, especially when it turns out the truck was stolen to begin with. Police caught up with Mr. Paz at the Keck Science Center where they found him, bolt cutters in hand, putting the bike into the back of the stolen pickup. While police weren’t able to nab the man for the stolen bike because it wasn’t registered, they didn't need help finding a slew of other charges to file against the Bloomington resident. Mr. Paz was arrested for the stolen car, possession of methamphetamine and for possession of drug paraphernalia.
