Victim Uses Craig’s List to Catch Thief

Jonathon PoolMEDFORD, Ore. — A man recognizes his own bike for sale on Craig’s List and gets the thief arrested.

Medford Police say Jonathon Pool stole a bike from a man’s home. The victim had an idea to catch Pool. He decided to post an ad on Craig’s List saying he wanted to buy a bike.

Officers say Pool responded and posted a photo of that victim’s bike. The victim recognized his piece of property and set up a meeting at Tinseltown. Officers wound up chasing Pool down.

“The suspect took off running and he ran for actually quite a ways till he collapsed from exhaustion. So, he was taken into custody at that time and he actually had warrants out for his arrest,” said Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau.

Officers also found methamphetamine with Pool.
