A 35-year-old man is facing at least his tenth theft charge following an arrest last month for allegedly stealing a pair of sneakers.
San Antonio police said Paul Perez, III, has nine prior theft convictions, most of which were for stealing items worth less than $3,500.
An arrest affidavit stated that a worker at Academy Outdoor and Sports recognized Perez from prior thefts at the store in the 7500 block of NW Loop 410 and began watching him when he walked into the business on Dec. 31.
The affidavit stated that he told police he saw Perez stuff a pair of Kevin Durant basketball shoes, worth about $130, into his pants and then walk out the store without paying.
The worker said that when he confronted him, Perez cussed and threw a security sensor at him, the affidavit stated.
Police said the employee later was able to identify Perez in a photo. Due to his prior convictions, Perez was arrested Monday on an enhanced charge of theft.
