Pleasanton Police Department and the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office Deputies (ASCO) arrested a man and a woman Monday afternoon as they were traveling northbound on I-37. An anonymous caller sent in a tip that a U-Haul truck was allegedly moving stolen goods.
Monday afternoon, ASCO deputies found a hoard of stolen goods: jewelry, coins, cash, guns, whiskey, furniture, electronics, and more in the U-Haul truck.
Sheriff David Soward, Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office said that four ASCO investigators and Pleasanton Police Department investigators spent Monday afternoon searching through the stolen goods. Investigators believe the couple stole from three or four residences and that it may be several weeks before they can trace all the items back to their owners.
ASCO charged Kenneth Micheal Collins, 49, from Jourdanton, with one felony count of Theft of Property: $1,500 – $20,000. Pleasanton PD and ASCO charged Tammy Collins, 48, with 2 felony counts of Theft of Property: $1500-$20,000. ASCO Investigators believes that the two are married. The couple were renting a house on 706 Palm St. in Jourdanton, Texas.
Sheriff Soward said, “What we can tell right now is that the female had been employed as a housekeeper at those residences,” said Soward.
The Atascosa County Jail is holding both at $10,000 bond. Elsie Guerra, Pleasanton Municipal Court Judge recommended a $40,000 bond for Tammy Collins.
