From staff reports - The Herald-Zeitung

Police arrested four San Antonio residents Wednesday who they allege engaged in organized criminal activity.

The four people —Ronald Copeland, 32, Gary Pfeuffer, 40, Shanaya Spencer, 23 and Felicia White, 46 — allegedly attempted to sell two 2009 Ford dually diesel pick-up trucks to an undercover officer in New Braunfels, Comal County Sheriff’s Office Detective John Bailey said.

The two trucks were worth more than $100,000 combined, Bailey said.

Through investigations, CCSO officials found that Pfeuffer once worked at a San Antonio car dealership, Bailey said.

“He learned the ins and outs of the dealership,” Bailey said. “He knew what security they would have (Wednesday) morning and manipulated it.”

Pfeuffer took the trucks and attempted to sell them to someone in New Braunfels, a CCSO news release said.

The arrest was a joint operation between the Texas Department of Public Safety, CCSO, New Braunfels Police Department and the Sheriff’s Combined Auto Theft Task Force, according to the release. It was carried out in the Wal-Mart parking lot at Walnut Avenue and Interstate 35.

All of the suspects are currently in Comal County Jail. As of Thursday, no bond had been set.
