Man Out On Bail, Arrested Again On Charge Of Having Stolen Property


A man suspected of burglarizing the Payson Roundup and Garden of Eden in March, was arrested last week for reportedly selling stolen goods from a Payson home.

Police arrested Paul Leneberg, 31, and two other Payson residents April 11 on charges of possession of stolen property and other charges.

On April 11, Payson police officers got a call of prowler near a home behind Home Depot on West Houston Mesa Road.

Officers found Steven Grant Crane, 30, inside the home, said Payson Police Chief Don Engler.

Officers arrested Crane on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary and possession of stolen property.

Later that morning, officers arrested Leneberg and Racheal Meagher, 26, at a retail store in Payson when Leneberg attempted to sell stolen items from the home, Engler said in a press release.

Following the arrest, officers searched Leneberg’s and Meagher’s home at 404 W. Jones in Payson.

Detectives found several items from the burglary as well as stolen merchandise from two other burglaries under investigation.

Officers arrested Leneberg on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property, trafficking in stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Meagher was charged with possession of stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Leneberg is a suspect in the burglary and theft of items from the Roundup and Garden of Eden retail store in the Swiss Village Shops.

Officers have not charged Leneberg for either of those burglaries.

The investigation is ongoing with additional charges pending.

"Out on bail..." Nice.

This idiot needs to know about the "three strikes and you're out" law.
