"APRIL 1--A week after dozens of people ransacked an Oregon home in response to a Craigslist ad offering its contents for free, police have arrested a couple for orchestrating the online hoax as part of a bid to cover up an earlier burglary at the property. Brandon and Amber Herbert were nabbed last night for allegedly posting the March 22 Craigslist ad, which claimed that the Jacksonville ranch's owner had to leave town so suddenly that his belongings--which included a horse--were available for the taking."Still can not believe that people fell for this.
Well at least they found the culprits --- I am surprised about the reason behind it though ... clever ... with so many prints around how would the cops ever prove they were actually there to steal? Too bad they didn't understand that when you use the internet for a crime you always leave a trace behind ... even the best hackers will get caught by following their virtual 'fingerprints'.
But could you imagine these two sitting there under their rock when suddenly there's a knock on the door and some one yells 'open up police'? Being it happened on April Fools Day, how much you want to bet that they opened the door thinking it was one of their loser friends and instead found real cops instead.
I thought for sure this was going to be a case of one of his friends playing some joke that went horribly out of hand. Poor guy.
