Police arrest suspect in car burglary outside Planet Fitness

EL PASO, Texas - Police officers arrested a man for the burglary of a vehicle outside the Planet Fitness Gym at 3000 Joe Battle.

17-year-old Brandon Snell was charged with "Burglary of Vehicle" and "Credit Card Abuse."

The alleged burglary happened April 3, 2017.

Police said the victim reported his vehicle had been burglarized while he was inside the gym.

Officers said Snell gained entry into the vehicle through an unlocked door and a wallet containing credit and debit cards was stolen.

Snell was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility on a $10,000 bond.

Police said this case is not related to the burglary of nine vehicles outside a Gold's Gym in East El Paso.

El Paso Police say this is a rising crime trend throughout the city. Police say gym parking lots are lucrative targets because victims often leave valuables like electronics, wallets, purses and cell phones in their vehicles while they work out inside the gym.
