Early this morning, October 30, just after 12:30 am, Garland Police received a report that several subjects were stealing building materials from a residential construction site in the 2700 block of Dodson Street and loading them into a U-Haul. When officers arrived, they observed the U-Haul in an alley and a subject standing outside.

Officers turned on the patrol vehicle’s overhead red and blue lights, and the U-Haul immediately sped away, leaving one male subject behind. That person was apprehended.

The U-Haul fled from the scene leading officers in a vehicle pursuit. The driver fled south towards LBJ Freeway, through Mesquite and, ultimately, into Dallas. With the assistance of DPD Air 1 and Dallas Police Officers, the driver was taken into custody in the 500 block of South Corinth Street.

Officers identified the driver as 29-year-old Ronnie Dale Sullivan of Dallas. The subject arrested at the scene of the theft is identified as 37-year-old Gerald Milton Winters of Mesquite.

Investigators found roofing materials in the back of the U-Haul believed to have been stolen from the construction site.

Officers are attempting to identify a third subject involved, dropped off from the U-Haul in Dallas during the vehicle pursuit. This person is described as a female with long black hair.

Sullivan is charged with Evading Arrest and Theft with Two or More Previous Convictions, and Winters is charged with Theft $750 to $2,500. Officers discovered Sullivan had a Felony Theft Warrant out of Grand Prairie.

Both subjects are currently in the Garland Jail.

The investigation is ongoing.
