A Phoenix man needed some help to haul away his stolen goods, so he turned to the nostalgic childhood hauler the red Radio Flyer wagon.

Court records show that just before 2 a.m. last week a homeowner near 3rd Avenue and Thomas Road saw a man taking her wagon from her home.

Police said that in the wagon were various items, including a reciprocating saw and an air compressor. Officers found 43-year-old Sang Kien a couple of blocks away, walking northbound on 3rd Avenue, documents said. A few yards behind him was the red wagon, containing the stolen items.

The homeowner identified Kien as the man she saw stealing the items from her home.

Kien was charged with burglary, and the red Radio Flyer wagon is now sitting in the home of its rightful owner.
