BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — A man was taken into custody after allegedly attempting to cross to Mexico with a stolen vehicle, Cameron County Sheriffs said.

Harley Nunez, 30, was arrested on Jan. 27 at the Gateway International Bridge on charges of theft of motor vehicle, according to a news release from Cameron County Sheriff Eric Garza.

Approximately 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 27, deputies responded to a call at the 6500 block of Vista Jardin in reference of a stolen vehicle, the release stated.

Upon arrival, the owner told the sheriff his 2006 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck, valued at $7000, was stolen from the front of his property, sheriffs said.
