Felon Forced Entry
Early morning Wednesday March 30th, Big
Bear Sheriff Deputies responded to a report of a commercial burglary in progress,
at the Moonridge Post Office, located north of Von’s Supermarket on Big Bear Boulevard.
Upon arrival, deputies made contact with a male
subject inside the business. The male was identified as Wade Hall. Hall forced
entry into the closed Post Office. While inside, Hall opened several packages
and envelopes. He was found to be in possession of numerous items that were
removed from the opened packages.
Hall was arrested and booked into the Big Bear Jail
on a felony charge of burglary. A records check on Hall revealed that he is
currently on felony probation. Deputies contacted Hall’s probation officer and
Hall was placed on a hold for violation of the terms and conditions of his
probation. Suspect Wade Hall remains in custody without the possibility of
bail, pending an arraignment hearing scheduled for April 4, 2016.
The U.S. Attorney General’s office has been
contacted and is reviewing this matter for the possibility of filing additional
federal charges. The property that was stolen by Hall was released to the
Postmaster of the Moonridge Post Office for return to its rightful owners. In
addition to being arrested Wednesday, Hall was also issued a citation on March
27th, on a charge of petty theft for stealing food at a local
grocery store. Wade Hall is scheduled to appear in court on June 27, 2016, to
answer for that misdemeanor charge.
