A Scotts Valley man who allegedly slashed tires in a movie theater parking lot Thursday was arrested on charges that include possession of stolen property, police said.
Adrian Angel Sanchez, 28, was arrested on suspicion of vandalism, possession of a dagger, possession of stolen property and public drunkenness, Scotts Valley police Sgt. David Bell said.
The alleged incident occured at Cinelux Cinemas, 226 Mt. Hermon Road,
about 10:15 p.m., according to Bell.
The suspect was gone when police arrived but officers were provided a description and license plate number for his vehicle, the sergeant said.
A deputy from San Lorenzo Valley recognized the vehicle as one seen in that area and contacted police with an address, Bell said.
A suspect matching the description provided from the movie theater incident was found in his driveway, attempting to dispose of a hubcap he was suspected of stealing from one of the victim vehicles.
He also had a knife allegedly used to slash the tires, the sergeant said.
