Two men were arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of breaking into El Camino Tire, 400 E. Lodi Ave., according to Lodi police.
Officers got a call at 3:14 a.m. that the men, Jose Reyna, 20, and Luis Avila, 19, were burglarizing the tire shop, police Sgt. Steve Maynard said. Reyna cut both his hands from breaking a window at the shop, Maynard said.
It was apparently the men’s second trip to the tire shop, Maynard said. They previously stole four tires and a set of rims before returning for more merchandise, he added.
Reyna and Avila ran from officers in different directions. Avila was captured by one officer, while a police dog chased Reyna, who was jumping fences trying to escape, police said. They were arrested on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy and resisting arrest.
