"They let themselves right into the house and helped themselves to totes of kids toys, a bed, this lady's kid has no bed now. Appliances, normal household stuff, a loveseat" says Green Bay Capitan Bill Bongle
Green Bay Police say two women broke into a home in the 700 block of Kellogg Street and stole $4,000 worth of belongings.
"A neighbor eventually confronted the people who were in the house, they said oh we are here for the stuff on Craigslist" Capitan Bongle explains about the bold theft.
The victim did place an ad on the site, to get rid of some items she no longer wanted. The ad did not invite people into her home.
"She said I will have these items out by the curb" according to Capitan Bongle.
A simple search on craigslist pulled up several local addresses with free things by their curb.
One of those ads led Local 5 to Robin Wallenfang, an avid Craigslist user.
"I've had no issues ever" explains Wallenfang.
He is surprised by the break-in, but still plans to post his items address included.
"I am not going to let some lowlife ruin my lifestyle" he says.
Police advise people only give their address to the actual buyer, or better yet set up a public meeting place.
The thieves are described as two females, possibly mother daughter:
1. White female in her 20's, thin build, 5'6", lighter brown shoulder length hair, glasses.
2. Female white, mid 40's, lighter, long hair in a pony tail, and crooked teeth. The two were seen driving an older model, dark colored Chevy pickup truck, no cap.
