When his business was burlarized, Mike Garrison hoped the stolen items would be returned, but never imagined the thief would try selling the property back to him.
"We didn't know anything about it until he called us this morning and said he had freight for us," said owner of Engine Master.
When Engine Masters was robbed earlier this month, someone took off with hundreds of dollars worth of auto parts and the damage to the property was extensive.
"We have a drop box for freight and they cut the chain link fence and took the whole entire box," said Garrison.
Police arrested 35-year-old Jesse Barreno. They believe Barreno took the property, then tried to selling back the stolen items.
"So we got involved and it lead to a bust here in front of...he actually brought the parts back to the business thinking he was going to be able to sell those back to the owner," said Sergeant Tim Tietjen with the Fresno Police Department.
Police say Barreno is a Bulldog gang member and has been involved in stealing property in the past.
Under the hood of the white truck Barreno was driving, police found a bag filled with at least a dozen ID's, along with social security cards and checks. Police say they could be used to commit identity theft.
"They find ways to use your stolen property to benefit them," said Sergeant Tietjen.
Garisson says this is the first time something like this has happened to him. He's happy the crackdown by police helped get his items back.
"The detectives have just done an amazing job," said Garrison.
Police say thieves are increasingly turning to Craigslist to sell stolen items. Their advice is to be cautious when buying items online.
