Tucson, Arizona | Published: 06.19.2008

The owners of a local eBay auction business are facing theft and fraud charges, suspected of selling their customers' merchandise and then refusing to pay out the proceeds, police said.

Tucson police arrested Thomas A. Collier, 36, and Wendy C. Wren, 35, owners of Arizona eBay Auctioneers, after serving a search warrant on the business Tuesday, said Sgt. Mark Robinson, a department spokesman.

The investigation started after several customers of the business notified police that they were unable to collect the proceeds from the sale of their merchandise or were unable to get the owners to return items.
