Antonio man caught selling $30,000 of stolen items on eBay A theft
suspect identified as Rule Castillo-Chavez, 21, has been arrested after San
Antonio police said they found out he was selling sports equipment stolen from a
North Side business on eBay. According to an arrest affidavit, the manager of
Team Express contacted police on Jan. 21, saying that more than $30,000 worth of
merchandise had disappeared from the store within about a month, beginning in
December. He also told police that a vendor had contacted him after seeing what
he believed was the stolen merchandise being sold on eBay. The affidavit stated
that detectives discovered the eBay account belongs to Castillo-Chavez. They
said photos posted to that account show the stolen property, and in the
background, they could see boxes that bear the name of the store, the affidavit
stated. Castillo-Chavez was arrested Wednesday on a theft charge. There's no
mention of how he got his hands on all of the property.
