Man arrested in connection with tubing theft in West Sacramento

A Sacramento man was arrested in West Sacramento early today after allegedly attempting to steal tubing from a local beverage company.

Police received a call from the employees of the 24-hour operated Nor-Cal Beverages plant at 1955 Cebrian Ave. about 12:30 a.m. that a man had driven onto the property and started loading the back of his pickup truck with tubing from the site.

When the Comse Aldaco, 33, saw police arriving, he got in his truck and drove through a gate that employees had closed to keep him on the property, said Lt. Tod Sockman, West Sacramento Police Department spokesman.

One of the tires on his truck was punctured as he drove through the gate, and he drove two blocks before abandoning his truck and fleeing.

After police set up a perimeter and called in a helicopter, the suspect's brother arrived at the perimeter. "It's obvious that he called his brother to come pick him up," Sockman said.

The man's brother identified his location in bushes near Shore and Port streets, and police arrested the man and took him to Yolo County Jail for grand theft, robbery and burglary.
