LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - A stolen cross is returned to its rightful owners after authorities make an arrest at a local grocery store.

Jose Luis Soto Rios, 56, is facing several charges including assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and theft.

Soto Rios was arrested on Friday, May 6 after Laredo Police responded to a disturbance at a grocery store located at the 4300 block of Santa Maria.

When officers arrived, Soto Rios became irate and assaulted one of the officers at the scene.
