Arrest made in Falls City auto dealership burglaries

Miguel Pastrano

(KLZA)--A Falls City Police Department investigation of burglaries at two Falls City automobile dealerships earlier this week, has led to the arrest of a man possibly in the country illegally.

Falls City Assistant Police Chief Jamie Baker tells MSCNEWS the investigation began Monday with reported burglaries at Armbruster Motor Company and Hullman’s Ford in Falls City.   A pickup was stolen from Armbruster Motor Company.

On Tuesday, Baker says the suspect in the burglaries was found and identified as Miguel Pastrano. The same day the pickup stolen from Armbruster’s was recovered.

Pastrano was arrested for the two auto dealership burglaries, theft of the pickup from Armbrusters, possession of a stolen vehicle from New Mexico and possession of methamphetamine, all of which are felony charges.

Both vehicles recovered during the investigation had been damaged.

Baker says it hasn't been determined where Pastrano is from.  He says the investigation has revealed Pastrano was released from jail in Hobbs, New Mexico, October 31 and a vehicle was reported stolen in that community the following day.

Pastrano is currently being held in the Richardson County Jail.  Baker said the Immigration Department contacted the Falls City Police Department, notifying them that it’s possible Pastrano is an illegal alien.
