Third Man Arrested in Hunter Pence Stolen Make-A-Wish Scooter Case

A third suspect has been arrested for stealing an autographed motorized scooter from San Francisco's Make-A-Wish office that belonged to San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence.

The San Francisco Police Department says Pence's scooter was recovered Monday after beat officers recognized two men in a surveillance video. Police say 37-year-old Judd Janke and 26-year-old Nicholas Tiller were arrested in the case.

A third man, 35-year-old Jacques Manns was arrested Tuesday.

Make-A-Wish Foundation spokeswoman Jen Wilson says San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee came to the city's foundation office Tuesday morning to deliver the good news.

A foundation donor paid $40,000 at an auction for the scooter and dinner for four with Pence last year. The scooter was being stored at the office.

The nonprofit organization last year arranged 400 wishes for San Francisco Bay Area children with life-threatening medical conditions.
