Suspects in Craigslist theft foiled by clever victim

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Authorities say a clever Clayton County man helped catch a robbery suspect.

It all began when a man advertised a Kawasaki dirt bike for sale on Craigslist.

A 16-year-old showed up to buy it. He took a test drive and then took off, police said.

The victim then put an up for a four-wheeler. He then told police about it, and they were all ready when the buyers showed up on the stolen bike.

Police say the teen and the other suspect both confessed their plan to steal the four-wheeler and are behind bars.
