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.
