Investigators think three people arrested in San Marcos this week are responsible for a number of vehicle burglaries here and in New Braunfels, including at Best Buy and Chili’s.

On Monday, San Marcos police intercepted the trio on Interstate 35 after receiving a bulletin from New Braunfels police about a northbound vehicle believed to be involved in burglaries. Roland Rene Serna, 27, Christopher Shad Sharp, 24, and Megan Christine Trevino, 21, were arrested near mile marker 215 in a carful of what police say is stolen property.

All three were arrested and charged with burglary of a vehicle and engaging in a criminal act. Trevino received an additional charge of possession of a controlled substance.

Sgt. Dave Waugh said property from three different burglary reports were found in the vehicle among other property. “The additional property suggests involvement in other burglaries,” Waugh said.

A total of 25 pieces of property were recovered in the vehicle, Waugh said, but did not identify the property because the investigation is ongoing.
