A 20-year old Redmond man was arrested Tuesday morning in the theft of four all terrain vehicles (ATVs) and a trailer valued at almost $29,000. Deputies were alerted to the situation when a resident discovered the property, allegedly purchased with a bad check, listed for sale on the popular web site craigslist.org.
Detectives executed a search warrant at 1619 NW Hemlock Avenue and in addition to the ATVs, found a stolen Haulmark trailer and several instruments of forgery capable of producing fraudulent checks, Sgt. Dizney said. The trailer -- valued at $8,600 -- was reported stolen to the Albany Police Department on January 8.
Saub was lodged in the Deschutes County Jail in lieu of $172,500 bail, and was charged with seven counts each for first-degree forgery, negotiating a bad check, identity theft, and computer crime. He also faces four counts of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, two counts of first-degree aggravated theft, and single charges of criminal possession of a forged instrument and criminal possession of a forgery device.
Anyone who has conducted by financial business with Saub, or who may have information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Detective Mike Biondi at 312-6401.
