An officer on patrol observed a running vehicle backed into a parking spot adjacent to, but not in front of the 7-Eleven, with a subject in the driver’s seat. He then observed a second subject exit the store and run to the vehicle. The officer drove up and approached the vehicle in question on foot. He spoke to and identified the driver and passenger and given the location and circumstances, canvassed the area for signs of criminal activity. Upon entering the 7-Eleven, he discovered that the subject seen running from the store had stolen cigarettes and that both subjects were suspects in other thefts in the region. He obtained video evidence and arrest warrants for both subjects.
