    The infamous Wayne Krieger Arrested !!

    Petaluma police recovered several stolen cars, including three classic Porsche sedans, and discovered chop shops this week as part of an investigation that began in 2019.

    The three sedans were discovered in Santa Rosa, Novato and San Francisco, the Petaluma Police Department announced Friday night.

    Novato resident Wayne Krieger, 71, is suspected of stealing the three cars, and he was arrested Nov. 27 when he arrived in San Francisco on a cruise ship, police said.

    Investigators searched property in Santa Rosa and Novato later that day and on Tuesday. The exact locations weren’t released.

    Both locations appeared to be chop shops, and police found two Porsches plus evidence of other stolen vehicles, parts, fake registration paperwork and materials to counterfeit vehicle identification numbers.

    The third Porsche was discovered at an unspecified location in San Francisco on Thursday along with more car parts and possibly stolen vehicles.


    A total of eight classic Porsche sedans were recovered.

    Thanks

    A buddy & I heard he had killer deals on 356s when I was living in San Jose in the 80s. He was in Gilroy, or maybe Morgan Hill at that time, and had a metal building filled with P Car parts and 356 & 911 shells.
    He showed us a 356 coupe that he wanted a lot of money for and we walked away. Later heard the car was two rusted wrecks welded together with engine from a third car.
    Turns up in our world every couple of years..

    I spent 2yrs of my life trying to manage my ‘73S restoration with this guy. Many thanks to members of this forum for helping me along the way. I got lucky, although I spent another 12 months with other reputable body and mechanic guys sorting out his crappy work. Glad to see him get his.

    Personally I never met Mr. Krieger but have read about him for years on this board. Some people are just born to be crooks I guess. Here is a guy who obviously knew a fair amount about Porsches. The marque has provided a good living for many involved in all aspects of Porsche business. He could have done the same but apparently for years and years, was on the dark side. He was arrested when he returned from a cruise the article said. Did Wayne live "the good life?" Anyone know? BTW, note he is 71 ! I wonder if this is his first arrest? Thanks.

    NICE!

    I got close but, not too close early on when looking for parts for my car on EBay... Multiple aliases in emails, dodgy parts descriptions etc. I never ended up trying to buy from him but, kept track of the A Hole.

    Hope he cries like a little girl in prison.
