Where do you sell stolen property? Do you fence it in a dark alley, sell it to your neighborhood thief, or try to hawk it at a pawnshop? Why not sell it on Craigslist?
A Texas salesman unwisely let a customer test drive a red Chevy Silverado alone. The thief was gone over half an hour. In that time, he must have made a key and key fob for the truck. When the salesman returned to his car lot the next morning, the truck was gone.
The salesman knew who stole the truck but had no way to find it. In comes his wife with the rescue. She searched trucks for sale on Craigslist and found it the very next day. Police caught the thief almost red handed. The thief spray painted the red car black. When he was arrested, he still had spray paint on his hands.
