A man accused of stashing $34,000 worth of stolen Don Julio tequila bottles and other products and appliances has been arrested.
Jose Baldemar Hernandez, 47, was charged with third-degree felony theft at police headquarters Wednesday morning. Hernandez was booked at the Webb County Jail and held on a $100,000 bond, according to court records.
Investigator Joe E. Baeza, Laredo Police Department spokesman, said the case remains open, as several others are suspected in the theft of cargo.
A representative of Werner Enterprises, 11113 Carrizo Drive, reported to police Nov. 11 he needed assistance finding some stolen Don Julio bottles. The criminal complaint against Hernandez alleges that pallets had been coming in short from Mexico to the United States since July
