After investigating a series of thefts involving semi-tractor and construction equipment batteries, police say they made two arrests on Saturday.

Detectives with CSPD were looking into the thefts for three weeks. Police say there appeared to be a pattern: suspects were stealing the batteries and then scraping the items for money.

Police say the suspects struck again early Saturday morning in the area of 3400 Sinton Rd., but that this time, officers found them immediately after. The suspects were allegedly holding four semi-tractor batteries when the officers caught them.

Police identified the suspects as Deshante Mullett and Michael Radka. They have been booked into the CJC on several felony charges.
