Craigslist ad leads police to stolen car

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - St. Louis County Police say a Craigslist post led them to a car thief.

 

Court documents indicate that a car owner reported that she started her car during a cold day in March and left it running with the keys inside and the doors unlocked. A few minutes later, the woman said she walked outside and the car was gone. Police say they traced the car to an ad on Craigslist.

 

21-year-old Aubrey Watkins is being held in connection to the theft. Police say Watkins said he bought the car from a friend and knew it was stolen.

The 2-year-old is OK after the scare late Tuesday in St. Louis.

Police say a car was left running at an ATM. The child's father got out to use the machine and while he was gone, someone stole the car with the child inside.

A St. Louis teen faces sentencing later this spring after he admitted to stealing a car at gunpoint.

15-year-old Cameron Coleman walked up to a Jeep in the Baden Neighborhood last May and pulled a gun on the driver. The man behind the wheel was able to free his two kids, aged 6 and 4, from the SUV before Coleman drove off. Two days later, police pulled over Coleman while he was driving the stolen SUV and after a short foot chase, they captured him.

A judge ruled to try Coleman as an adult and he pleaded guilty to several felonies. He will learn his sentence May 5.
