Pablo Sela, the 48-year-old man accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of artifacts, Native American baskets, vintage guns, and Nazi memorabilia from a locked storage unit at Collector’s Corner, has pleaded not guilty to elder abuse, receiving stolen property, and drug possession.

Owner of Iron Cross Tattoo, Sela had rented the parlor space from the 83-year-old antique shop owner for 17 years. Sela, who is from Spain, remains in custody on an ICE hold. The investigation is still very much ongoing, said police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood, and dozens of valuables are still missing.
