Crime watch

On April 3 at about 8:37 a.m., officers patrolling the downtown area received the second of two calls that morning related to a male suspect loitering in the women’s restroom at one of the Starbucks locations on Third Street Promenade.

This was also the second day in a row that officers contacted the suspect, identified as Jake Wagenhals, in that area. At about 7:30 a.m., the officers called Wagenhals out of the restroom at the request of employees and advised him he was no longer allowed inside the business.

Approximately one hour later, Wagenhals was back at the Starbucks, where he pulled 18 bags of almonds from a display rack and placed them inside a shopping bag. The store manager approached Wagenhals and asked him if he was going to pay for the almonds. Wagenhals replied in the affirmative, walked over to the register and presented the bags of almonds to the employee behind the counter. He then proceeded to stand at the register without paying for the almonds for several minutes until officers arrived.

The manager requested Wagenhals be arrested for trespassing. Officers searched Wagenhals’ backpack and located a container of applesauce from Starbucks that he had not paid for. In addition, Wagenhals was in possession of several personal care items and energy drinks that had been taken during the incident from the day prior when he was arrested for shoplifting from a nearby convenience store.

Wagenhals, 33, homeless, was held on $5,000 bail.
