A man has been nabbed and charged in connection with a wild chase that spanned Berks and Lehigh counties.

Authorities said they arrested Jamie Xavier Cintron-Castro in Reading on Wednesday.

Police had been searching for Cintron-Castro since Sept. 14. That's when authorities said he and Salvador Gallo-Navarro, 23, took $11,000 worth of tires from Bennett Infiniti in South Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co.


The two suspects then led officers on a chase down Route 222 to the Fleetwood area.
