Obviously Fake Registration Tags Lead to Arrest of Two Thieves

VACAVILLE – Poorly made fake registration tags led to the arrest of two suspects who are allegedly responsible for a theft of several baseball gloves from a Fairfield Dick’s Sporting Good’s store.

The arrests took place last week when an officer was patrolling the area near the Premium Outlets when he spotted the fake registration tab. The vehicle quickly attempted to lose the trailing officer, but the officer was able to catch up and conduct a traffic enforcement stop. Both Joseph Seeger, 39, of Sacramento, and his passenger, Travis Quigley, 36, of Sacramento, were found to have a suspended driver’s license. Seeger was also found to be on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for a firearms violation in Sacramento. Quigley was found to be on felony probation out of Placer County for conspiracy.

When searching the vehicle, officers located several high-end baseball gloves. The baseball gloves were found to have the finger lacing cut where the theft-deterrent sensors are typically placed. Also located were scissors, wire cutters, and a magnetic device. As part of the investigation, the officers contacted numerous retail stores and learned that the Dick’s Sporting Goods store had several high-end baseball gloves stolen. “Store employees were working with numerous other stores throughout the Bay Area who’d been the victim of similar thefts with remarkably similar suspects,” Vacaville Police officials said. “The Fairfield store had surveillance video of the suspects and Mr. Quigley and Mr. Seeger could both allegedly be seen on the surveillance video tampering with the gloves and taking them from the store without paying.”

Authorities value the stolen gloves at $2805. Seager and Quigley were both arrested for burglary and possession of stolen property. Seager was also charged with violation of PRCS, and Quigley with violation of probation. If you have any additional information about this case, please contact Ofc. Dustin Willis at (707) 449-5200.
