Men caught selling stolen merchandise on eBay after UPS burglary, police say
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two Memphis men were taken into custody after police say they were caught selling merchandise that had been stolen from a local UPS facility.
According to police, the burglary happened at the UPS warehouse on Meltech Drive on December 3.
Video surveillance showed three men breaking into the warehouse through a loading dock door and then passing boxes back through to a waiting vehicle. Inside those boxes were 632 Turtle Beach Stealth 700 gaming headsets, a Champion generator and medical equipment valued at $25,280.
Investigators later learned that some of the stolen items were sold over eBay by two men identified by police as Karoomba Jones and Michael Wilson. They said Jones sold 22 of the gaming headsets for a $2,420 profit while Wilson sold 65. He pocketed approximately $7,700.
Authorities said both men confessed to selling the items, but not to the burglary. They were charged with theft of property.
The third suspect has not been identified.
