The trooper got into his police car and went looking for the Blazer, and found it at the Concrod Mall. The trooper found the driver rummaging through another car's glove box. He identified himself, and the driver tried to drive off. The trooper hung from the door and was able to put the vehicle in park and arrest the driver, identified as Angel Cruz, 54, of East Orleans Street in Philadelphia.
While he was in custody, police found Cruz was wearing a Delaware State Police 20 year anniversary watch which was stolen in 2007. Police say he modified it so the months on the watch were changed from English to Spanish.
The Blazer he was driving was also stolen, police say.
