Atlanta Cops Hunt Brazen Thieves Caught On Tape Stealing iPad Man Advertised On Craigslist
Two Atlanta men who responded to a Craigslist ad offering an iPad for sale are being sought by police for the theft of the device, a crime that was recorded on a cell phone camera.
Last Thursday, the suspects answered an ad placed by Enrique Santiago and his wife Anna Olmedo, and asked the couple to meet them outside an apartment complex, according to an Atlanta Police Department report.
As Santiago showed the two men the iPad, Olmedo--seated inside the couple’s minivan--filmed the trio discussing a possible sale. After both suspects briefly examined the iPad--which Santiago assured them was brand new--they bolted with the popular Apple product.
Atlanta police today released the above video shot by Olmedo in an effort to get the public’s help in identifying the iPad thieves (whose faces and clothing are clearly shown on the clip). Investigators believe the suspects are members of a "robbery crew that finds victims on Craigslist" and, after setting up meetings in a particular neighborhood, runs off with a target's merchandise.
