Orem police use Craigslist ad to catch shoplifter

OREM, UT – Orem police used a missed connection ad on Craigslist to identify a Target shoplifter. Police report that she shoplifted more than $500 worth of items.

“(Within) an hour of our posting, we knew who she was,” said Lt. Craig Martinez.

The ad read, in part, “You didn’t see me, but I was watching you from above. Your hair was long, brown and draped to the side. I was waiting with anticipation at the checkout line, hoping to get to know you better. That time never came. You didn’t show up, but I did see you leave the store without any bags to carry your stuff. I hope you read this and will take a shot and give me a call. My number is 911.”

The woman was identified and turned herself in the next day.
