Shoplifter charged with multiple counts of organized retail theft; trafficking stolen property

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Police arrested 29-year-old Jonathan Vildosola on 18 counts of organized retail theft and 17 counts of trafficking in stolen property after a patrol officer from the Central City Precinct responded to a shoplifting call of someone stealing "Jawbone Jambox" speaker systems.

After reviewing the information provided by the store employees, the officer determined that Vildosola was involved in thefts from other stores.

The officer shared his information with the Neighborhood Enforcement Team of his precinct and found out that Vildosola had stolen approximately 21 of the same speaker systems from various retail stores throughout Maricopa County.

The value of the items was estimated at nearly $6,000, and a number of the systems had been pawned by Vildosola between January and March of this year using Craigslist and Facebook.
