What started with a man trying to sell his car on Craigslist ended Monday night with his car lodged into the front of a home in Northwest Fresno.
The man met with potential buyers around nine Monday night at Weber and Hughes. Those potential buyers ended up robbing him – stealing his wallet, cell phone and car.
The victim called police. And officers soon spotted the stolen car and the car that belonged to the thieves.
Police chased both cars.
One of the cars crashed on Highway 99 at Belmont. Two people in the car were arrested.
The thieves in the victim’s car headed west on Shaw. They were trying to turn south onto Polk Avenue but couldn’t make the turn. They crashed the stolen car into the front of a house on the southwest corner of that intersection.
One person was inside the home at the time, but they were not hurt.
One of the men in the stolen car was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The second suspect, a man that appeared to be in his late teens to early 20s, was taken to jail.
A total of four people were taken into custody.
The victim wasn’t hurt.
