Craigslist sale turned carjacking ends in crash
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno police have arrested three people they say arranged to buy a car on Craigslist, then carjacked the victim.
Officers say two of the suspects were wanted parolees. Christopher Glaude and Goldie Walker were arrested after the carjacked Honda slammed into a house during a short pursuit.
Police say around 9:00 Monday night two women went to test drive a car they found on Craigslist. But, a short time later the women said they wanted to take the car to a mechanic.
Police say they drove to a location where the victim was carjacked at gunpoint. Authorities believe the women were working together with the suspects.
Deputy Chief Keith Foster said, "We believe that all of these individuals involved were in prostitution and were going to use these vehicles to drive to another city to facilitate the act of prostitution."
A woman was also arrested for her involvement in the crime, she is 20 year old Savana Meeker.
Officers say the truck the suspects drove to the carjacking, was also stolen last week.
Police are still looking for another unidentified woman who got away.
