Well isn't that efficient. Determine if there is a market for the item first, then steal it.

I would think all the people whose stuff wouldn't have sold who DIDN'T get it stolen because of this would be thankful.

Moultonborough police believe they were using the Craigslist ad as an alibi, and could say they were just responding to it and leaving with a free item.

If only the libruls would let the free market work, then ... BENGHAZI!

Insert comparison between Craigslist and any torrent search engine. Yet only torrent search engines are vicariously liable?

I must say that was some really impressive police work.

//wonder how they knew it was a fake ad.

"Police found that ad on Craigslist, as well as another for a truck body at the same location...

Before anyone could grab the goods, police set up surveillance at the Route 25 address and caught the suspects in the act."
- TFA

Are the police just searching Craigslist every day, all day, suspicious of all free items? Or did someone tip them off. Seems like the article is missing that queue.

No. Sometimes they troll Facebook or look for donut porn.

Ah, the ad wasn't for them selling the item (which would be brilliant in it's own right*), it was like this.
1) Spot something you want.
2) Post an add saying it's free for the taking.
3) Go take it.

I don't know how the cops would be able to spot it and get there before them, I wouldn't think you would want to wait more than an hour between the two. Probably just did it too much in a short period of time. They dug to greedily.

/Write and rite also make sense, but I think right is the correct phrase.

Someone probably got there before the suspects did and wanted the free stuff. Homeowner called the police and they were waiting for the real criminals.

1) I suspect this was an ongoing scam, the police very well might have been watching.

2) The poster would have to post from somewhere they had connectivity, probably somewhere they didn't have their own connectivity (so it couldn't be traced to them.) Note that it was farm stuff--this likely means the poster is some distance away when they post.

I would guess they got caught by the too greedy thing. Anything goes stolen or missing from me, the first thing I check is if it pops up in craigslist. So after the first one or two, someone checking is bound to notice that it's gone up as 'free' - which is suspicious, but also notice the timing which would give the whole game up. From there it's simple enough to monitor the freebies for suspicious items being posted or perhaps too many from a small area.

Well, it isn't like there's a category on craigslist for hot items. Whereas every time you search for a movie on a torrent search, any results are extremely unlikely to be from the copyright holders.

How was that?

Trolling? If not, this is the steamiest pile of dumbshiat I've seen in my long day of cruising Fark.
