Harker Heights Police Arrest Craigslist Con Artists

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- Suspected con artists got quite the surprise when the people they tried to rob turned out to be undercover police officers.

Harker Heights Police started an investigation after getting a tip about a Craigslist deal that seemed too good to be true.

The undercover officers pretended like they wanted to buy the items, and set up a transaction meeting.

When the officers got there, there were no items and the suspects tried to rob them.

Both suspects were arrested.

The police department is asking all residents to be on high alert of all Craigslist posts.

If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.

If you do buy items off of Craigslist, meet the seller in a heavily populated area or better yet, have them meet you your local police department
