Craigslist shoppers steal Tosa homeowner's furnace

Oct. 31, 2012

A man who used Craigslist to help clean out his house before a remodel found himself missing a gas furnace in Wauwatosa last week.

According to the police report:

The gas furnace was taken from a residence in the 400 block of North 68th Street at 10:25 a.m. Oct. 25.

The victim was doing a total remodel of his home and invited people from Craigslist to take items from the house.

The man said not to take the new, high-efficiency gas furnace, valued at $300.

The man didn’t notice the furnace was taken at first due to the high number of people in the home.
