KOMO News is reporting that a TV, DVD player and furniture were stolen from a recreation room at the Lynnwood Country Club Apartments. The theft happened after the manager posted an ad offering free items on Craigslist.
On Saturday, the room was packed with things to sell at the yard sale. The sale itself was a success.
After the sale, Cunningham posted an ad on Craigslist, offering up the leftover items for free. Her posted instructed interested parties to simply contact her, and bring a donated food item for the local food bank.
But instead of contacting Cunningham, someone apparently drove to the posted address on Sunday, found the unlocked door to the recreation room, and took whatever they wanted.
I found it pretty amusing that they contacted KOMO problem solvers, considering that this same apartment complex was also featured in a consumer protection news story not that long ago. But rather they were the ones being accused of stealing — from their own tenants as was reported by glossynews.com.
Someone else remembered that the manager at the time was stealing rent checks to pay for her drug and alcohol addiction, per a comment by a local reader.
If she wanted to have people contact her before taking the items then she shouldn't have put an address at all. Problem solved. She posted something for free and when someone took it she says its stolen? She left the room unlocked, posted an ad saying it was free and is surprised that people came and took the stuff? Really?
