Craigslist ad leads to robbery; caught on tape

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - One man's ad on Craigslist ended with him getting robbed. One thing the crooks didn't count on was getting caught on video.

"I don't feel safe anymore," said Christian. That's why he didn't want to be identified.

Christian placed an ad on Craigslist, telling people he had free stuff on the curb, just come pick it up.

Instead, three men came to get the items and then made their way inside his home. Christian said they used the side door to enter into his home. He said the thieves stole $1,000 worth of stuff.

The crooks didn't know they were being watched by Christian's camera.

"I did file a police report- they followed up with me and they came out and took the video for evidence," said Christian.

Now, he's offering a $500 reward to anyone who can identify the men in the video.
