ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Weeks ago we brought you the story of a man walking out of a Napa Auto Parts store with several commercial batteries charged to a phony account number.
We're told that man has been caught.

Steven Galindo was arrested in Odessa after what Fort Stockton Police Chief Art Fuentes says was a collaborative effort on the part of several West Texas law enforcement agencies.

It turns out that at the time the warrant was issued, he was already detained in Lubbock but the news didn't spread until after he was bailed out of jail.

Fuentes spoke with the Fort Stockton Pioneer and said Odessa detectives are still working to track down the stolen batteries.
