PHOENIX — Workers took matters into their own hands and found four Weber grills that were stolen from the Legacy Golf Resort in South Phoenix.

Phoenix police report that on February 6, they were contacted by workers at the Legacy Golf Resort near 32nd Street and Baseline Road, who had located a Weber grill that was stolen from the resort a few days prior.

Police say in total four grills, worth $2,400 each, were stolen from the resort. Workers found one of the stolen grills for sale on Offer Up for $250. They contacted the seller, Mark Anthony McCullough, 23, and made arrangements to buy the grill.

They then contacted the police.

Police went by McCullough's home and found the grill out in front of the house and questioned McCullough. He allegedly admitted to stealing all four grills. Police say the serial numbers on the grills matched those reported taken by the resort.

McCullough has been charged with theft and trafficking in stolen property.
