Man stole Pokémon cards, tried to sell them back to the same store
Not the best card to have up your sleeve
A business from Bellingham was burgled of nearly $20,000 worth in Pokémon and Magic the Gathering cards on August 9th. The suspect, Myles Vaughn Pajnogac, was accused of entering the store by smashing through the glass front door and stealing the merchandise.
A month later, Pajnogac allegedly tried to go back to the same store he robbed to sell back the stolen items. When recognized, one of the employees called the police and reported that, after being confronted about the situation, Pajnogac became belligerent and told the employee “I’ll rob you again (expletive),” before he left, leaving the cards behind.
The employees confirmed that the items left were the same ones stolen on August 9th and on September 3rd, Pajnogac was found, arrested, and booked on suspicion of first-degree malicious mischief, second-degree burglary, first-degree theft, second-degree possession of stolen property, and first-degree trafficking. However, he was released on his own recognizance on September 4th.
By now, it’s been reported that police has found even more Pokemon cards, totaling to approximately $8,000 worth of stolen cards being recovered.
