Police Arrest Man Accused of Craigs-List Fraud

Posted: Updated:

WEST RICHLAND, Wash. - A fraud suspect is behind bars after West Richland police say he tried to rent out a home that was not his.

Officers say a woman responded to Marc Trujillo's Craigs-list ad for a rental property. She eventually paid him money to rent the home.

The woman says she later became suspicious when she saw the home scheduled to be sold through a realty company for the actual owner, a Navy serviceman deployed overseas.

Police arrested Trujillo Thursday and booked him into the Benton County Jail.

Officers say the investigation also led them to stolen property in a Kennewick home.
