INDIANAPOLIS - Police said a Craigslist-spawned arrangement that went bad ended in the arrest of two men this week in Indianapolis.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, a man reported a robbery in the area of 52nd Street and Moller Road.
The man said he had gone there to complete an exchange that was formulated on Craigslist, but two men stole his gaming system and sped away.
Those two men have been identified by police as Ricky Wilburn, 21, and Cedrick Gleaves, 19.
IMPD said the man followed the thieves, who were reportedly driving erratically in their attempt to escape. The men ditched their vehicle at a dead end near 52nd and Beech Drive and were seen running away on a nearby golf course as officers established a perimeter.
IMPD said a K-9 officer began to track the two men, forcing one of them to surrender to police as he tried to run between two houses. The second man was reportedly found by the K-9 under a nearby mini-barn. That man reportedly refused to come out, so the K-9 was deployed to get him.
Officers arrested and preliminarily charged Wilburn and Gleaves with theft and resisting law enforcement.
