POLICE: Man sold $40,000 model trains to The Roundhouse POLICE: Man sold $40,000 model trains to The Roundhouse
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man for selling $40,000 of his father's stolen model trains to a Louisville hobby store.

It happened earlier this year. Police say that on Feb. 23, 36-year-old Anthony S. Dockwiller showed up at The Roundhouse on Brownsboro Road, near Rudy Lane, and sold the antique model trains to the store.

The Roundhouse is a hobby shop that specializes in antique model trains.

Dockwiller's father had reported the trains stolen days earlier. According to police, he eventually visited The Roundhouse and found his train set. Since Dockwiller had to display his ID to store employees before he sold the trains, it was easy to identify him as the seller.

Police were called, and Dockwiller was arrested Friday evening, shortly after 6 p.m., on an arrest warrant.

He was charged with receipt of stolen property of a value in excess of $10,000.
