Grand Theft Suspect Identified After Stolen Item was Found for Sale on eBay

LAKE ARROWHEAD – An October 23, 2015, case finally has a suspect after stolen items were found for sale on EBAY authorities said. Deputies from the Twin Peaks station were made aware of a grand theft in the 2800 block of Highway 189, in the Lake Arrowhead community. The items stolen were two binocular viewing machines that were stolen from the business. The two machines were estimated to be worth around $25,000.

The victim contacted the deputies with an EBAY account that was selling a binocular machine similar to one of the stolen items. Through investigation, it was learned that the EBAY account belonged to a San Bernardino pawn shop. The pawn shop staff was helpful and provided the deputy with the serial number and it was confirmed that it was one of the stolen machines. They learned that Jeffery Waegner, a 55-year-old San Bernardino man sold the stolen binocular machine to the pawn shop in 2015.

The victim’s vigilance and good record keeping, as far as the serial numbers assisted deputies in doing their job to identify Waegner as the suspect. Waegner is currently serving a state prison sentence and this case will be submitted to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office for review.

If you have any information regarding this case, please contact Deputy Jason Mascetti at the Twin Peaks Station, (909) 336-0600 or WeTip 1-800-78-CRIME.
