CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Lots of people sell stuff on Craigslist, but even if you think you're taking proper precautions, sometimes transactions can go wrong.
That's what happened to one Charlotte man on my weekly Crimestoppers report.
He put his iPhone up for sale on Craigslist. Then he got a potential buyer to meet him at the florist shop inside the Harris Teeter near University City.
They chatted about the phone, but all of the sudden, the buyer turned into a thief, grabbed the phone and ran. He was caught on surveillance dashing through the store.
But what happened next is almost comical, and definitely ironic. He dropped a telling piece of evidence.
