Craigslist Fraud Team Captured in Georgia

Laprecia Lesane and Christopher Michael Dillard were arrested in Buford, Georgia on Friday, 6/25/2010 at 1:30pm after the Fayetteville Police Department received a tip from a citizen there who recognized the suspects from an online posting the department sent out on 6/4/2010.


A citizen in Buford, Georgia confirmed the identity of Lesane and Dillard after a Google search produced results showing the pair was wanted in Fayetteville on several fraud related charges. Police then discovered that the suspects would be in a local store to purchase television sets on Friday afternoon.

 After coordinating with the Gwinnette Sheriff’s office in Buford, Georgia, a sting operation was put in place. Once the suspects went inside the business, officers converged and arrested the suspects. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office will be completing the extradition of the suspects back to North Carolina.
