During preflight of aircraft XXXX, both the captain and myself determined that the correct aircraft logbook was on board. We determined that no open items existed and that the hard copy discrepancies were legal and in the logbook. Subsequent to our logbook inspection, we observed a 'stall asymmetry.' circuit breaker was pulled and collared. We notified maintenance of the situation and they advised us that a mechanic would be sent to our aircraft to investigate. Upon arrival, the mechanic removed the collar, closed the circuit breaker and removed the discrepancies from the logbook without advising us. As a result and without our knowledge, we departed without discrepancies on board. We discovered this discrepancy en route during routine logbook completion. Upon arrival at destination, maintenance was advised of the situation and a new discrepancy was generated and placed on board. Human factors: lack of reasonable communication on the part of ZZZ mechanic regarding his actions.
