Stolen car victim uses Craigslist to nab auto theft suspect

COMPTON, LOS ANGELES

Investigators say the car's owner discovered that his stolen car was being advertised for sale on Craigslist.

That's when the owner called detectives at the Compton sheriff's station who prepared search warrants at two locations and arrested the suspect.

The suspect had reportedly sold the car to someone in East Los Angeles, but detectives recovered the car and returned it to its rightful owner.
