Search warrant nets 42-inch plasma TV, 2 laptops, stereo equipment

Two 20-year-olds were arrested Wednesday after police found thousands of dollars in stolen equipment at their home, some of which is believed to be UA property, police said.

Daniel Warner Wade and James Michael Miller were charged with theft by control of stolen property and possession of marijuana for transportation or sale, said Sgt. Eugene Mejia, University of Arizona Police Department spokesman.

Police found the property and marijuana after using a search warrant to enter their home on the 4000 block of East Douglas Street on Wednesday afternoon, Mejia said.

Both Wade and Miller had two warrants out for their arrest for misdemeanor offenses, and Wade was additionally charged with possession of an illegal weapon after police found nunchucks during the search, Mejia said.

Marijuana and cash were also found at the scene.

Wade and Miller were booked into Pima County Jail and released by yesterday afternoon.

Items recovered from the search, which was the result of an anonymous tip, included a 42-inch plasma TV, two laptops, computers, monitors and stereo equipment.

Mejia estimated the total value of the items recovered to be between $10,000 and $20,000.

The plasma TV is believed to be one of two $7,000 TVs stolen from KUAT in early September. The TVs were stolen from a studio in the Modern Languages building and there were no signs of forced entry.

All of the serial numbers on the recovered equipment have been removed, making it harder for police to determine the previous owners, Mejia said.

"We don't know what they were doing with the equipment, if they were selling it or had purchased it," he said.

Police will use computer forensics to try to find out if the equipment is UA property.

Tucson Police Department is also working on the case and believes some of the equipment was stolen from the Tucson area, Mejia said.

Police are working to identify the location of the second plasma TV and are investigating how Miller and Wade got the equipment, he said.
