Apparently MMA doesn’t pay if you’re just a regional fighter.
A Fresno, California fighter named John Reedy is facing multiple felony counts including residential burglary and receiving stolen property after neighbors, who witnessed the 29-year-old removing appliances and fixtures from a vacant property Thursday, called police.
According to authorities, Reedy, who fought under the nicknames ”Wild Child” and “Cen-Cal Kid” is responsible for a string of burglaries from vacant residential and construction properties over the past few months, including at least three thefts at the location he was caught robbing this week.
“We had vanities. We had lights. We had all kinds of different kitchen appliances. We big flower pots if you will. It was pretty amazing how it all came together.” said Clovis Police spokesperson Janet Stoll-Lee. ”The man saw him on video and one of his colleagues from Leo Wilson Homes and then went and tried to actually stop him from getting away. But he was able to swerve around their vehicles and that’s when officers caught up with him a little bit later on.”
