Last Updated: 63 days ago
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.
