Seguin PD nabs career criminal; Suspect connected to burglaries in SA, Dallas, Houston
Posted on 2/13/2018 6:45:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- There will be fewer 18-wheeler burglaries in the state of Texas thanks to a thorough investigation by the Seguin Police Department.
 
Carlos Contreras, public information officer and crime prevention officer for the Seguin Police Department, says local detectives recently arrested Patrick Joyner, 66, of San Antonio for his connection to big rig burglaries along the IH 10 and 35 corridors.
 
Contreras says Joyner is known to be a career burglary criminal connected to vehicle burglaries not only in Seguin but also in Houston, San Antonio and Dallas.
 
"Getting him arrested -- having this individual arrested and the amount of burglaries that this individual may have conducted in a two decade span is unbelievable. It's a great job what our detectives did and what our officers did too as well in getting this individual off the streets -- not only in the Seguin community but all communities within the area and around the state are safe from this individual," said Contreras.
 
Contreras says Joyner has admitted to breaking into 18-wheelers for almost two decades. He reportedly confessed to breaking into at least 40 big rigs across the state including up to 14 in Seguin. It is believed that that this number is much higher due to several hundred pawn shop tickets that were found during the investigation, and the number of cities Joyner admitted to committing burglaries.
 
Detectives say they were also able to link his distinct manner in burglarizing 18-wheelers to possible other cases along the
I-10 and I-35 corridor.
 
An arrest warrant was issued for Joyner on Tuesday, Feb. 6 and executed on Wednesday, Feb. 7 by Seguin PD detectives. Joyner's bond was set at $75,000. Joyner was arrested and booked in the Guadalupe County Jail.
