Police in Winslow Township NJ recently arrested two local residents who allegedly committed fraud by plotting to sell a stove from a foreclosed home.
The suspects are a 48-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman. They both reside on the 100 block of Meadow Lane in the Sicklerville section of Winslow, New Jersey. According to authorities, the suspects posted an online ad on Craigslist and offered to sell a new stove.
The stove was in a house located on Wagon Wheel Drive in Winslow Township, NJ. However, the suspects did not own the home or the stove. The house was actually in foreclosure.
When a couple of real estate agents with ReMax Preferred in Marlton NJ realized what was going on, they alerted law enforcement. Winslow detectives then arranged a meeting with the suspects and said that they would purchase the stove.
Undercover cops met with the suspects at the foreclosed home and the suspects allegedly attempted to sell the stove. Police then placed the suspects under arrest.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were transported to the Camden County Jail in Camden, New Jersey.
