N.M. police use eBay to recover stolen avionics from Skyhawk


Police in Alamogordo, N.M., recovered $25,000 of avionics stolen from a Cessna Skyhawk less than a week after a flying club reported the missing equipment. One day after the heist, detectives found what appeared to be the missing equipment listed on eBay, and were able to trace the seller’s account to a German man who was staying in a local hotel. After bringing the man in for questioning, police searched his hotel room and found the missing equipment. The plane belongs to a flying club at Holloman Air Force Base but had been parked at White Sands Regional Airport at the time of the theft. The man charged in connection with the theft allegedly used another person’s security badge to get onto the airport ramp.
