A 32-year-old Milwaukee man is facing charges after he was caught allegedly selling items on Craigslist that were stolen from a Waukesha auto repair shop.
Lloyd D. Rodriguez was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court on Aug. 21 with one count of receiving more than $2,500 in stolen property. If convicted, he faces up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On July 1, a burglary was reported at Fernandez Auto Service, 817 W. St. Paul Ave., when an employee came into work to find someone had stolen a $700 stereo out of a car along with more than $10,000 worth of rims, tools and computer parts from inside the business.
While investigators were looking into the burglary, they discovered Rodriguez was selling a set of rims on Craigslist that were stolen from the shop. Police interviewed him and he admitted to knowing the items were stolen, saying he was selling them for a friend.
Rodriguez is currently being held in Waukesha County Jail on a $5,000 signature bond.
