Craigslist scammer sentenced

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A Bakersfield man who took a plea deal for his involvement in a Craigslist scam has been sentenced to three year of probation.

Tope Jelugbo, 28, was arrested back in July for placing ads on the website seeking a room for rent.

Prosecutors said instead of renting out a room, several people were swindled out of money and their identity.

Police were able to use surveillance video to find him.
