Followup: Craigslist whole house looting

The Craigslist based looting I mentioned a few posts back resulted in a subpoena of Craigslist records, and the arrest of the couple who had posted the ad - apparently to cover the theft of saddles and other items. The Smoking Gun has mugshots and more details.

Investigators were lucky this time - the couple didn't use an anonymizing proxy or otherwise cover their tracks well enough to avoid being discovered. If this becomes a more common event, we'll likely see better concealment in the future.
