Authorities arrested a man suspected of trafficking electronics stolen from Target store shipments, totaling about $6,500.

UPS contacted the Target Distribution Center in April to inform them many shipments it received from the Tucson location appeared to have been tampered with, according to Tucson Police Sgt. Pete Dugan.

Investigators with Target and UPS discovered at least 11 iPads, speakers, headphones, an iPod and a camera were taken from shipping packages.

TPD's Larceny Detail located someone in Tucson who was selling electronics online that appeared to be similar to the stolen items, Dugan said. The phone number that was used returned to an employee who worked at the Target distribution center.

Police conducted a traffic stop and found four iPads and an iPod in the suspect's car. The driver, identified as 25-year-old Sonny Quezada, later admitted to stealing 14 iPads in addition to other items from Target, according to a news release.

Police booked Quezada into the Pima County Jail on charges of trafficking in stolen property and felony theft.

Anyone with further information relating to this case is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
