WEST, Texas (KWTX) Nathaniel Alexander Wilson, 23, and Amber Lynn Decker, 17, both of San Antonio, have been arrested and authorities are looking for Kaleub Lathyn Reynolds-Smith, 18, of Killeen and San Antonio, in connection with an area crime spree in December involving a string of vehicle thefts and burglaries and the use of stolen credit cards to make purchases around the state.

Reynolds-Smith is considered armed and dangerous, West police said in a press release posted on the department’s Facebook page.

San Antonio police arrested Wilson and Decker after a red Ford Mustang that was stolen in West was used in a robbery in San Antonio, the news release said..

The suspects crashed the car as they fled and Wilson was arrested, police said.

Decker was arrested “after further investigation tied her into the local investigation,” police said.

As many as 30 vehicles were broken into and six were stolen in December in the West area as well as in Hillsboro and Hill County.

Video from a store surveillance camera at a gas station in Ellis County showed a man using a credit card stolen in one of the break-ins, and in Hillsboro, a surveillance camera recorded video of a woman opening a gate in the dark during one of the vehicle thefts.

All six of the stolen vehicles have been recovered, police said, and investigators have also recovered property and weapons stolen from the vehicles.
