WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A man was arrested Thursday night after stealing a woman's cell phone through a Craigslist ad.

Police say it all started when the victim listed her cell phone for sale on Craigslist and agreed to meet the suspect at a local Checkers restaurant late Thursday night.

When the suspect arrived, he pretended to examine the phone to see if it worked and then ran away with it.

Wilmington Police later arrested Dashon Corbin and charged him with larceny.
