AUBURN, Placer County (CBS/AP) — A man borrowed a Placer County woman’s car and then sold it on Craigslist, according to police.
The 55-year-old woman told Auburn officers that she loaned her car on Oct. 6 to an acquaintance she identified as Jeff Keller and he didn’t return it. Investigators don’t believe that’s the man’s real name.
The woman, whose name is being withheld, filed a stolen vehicle report.
Investigators said the man advertised the vehicle on Craigslist, identified himself as the car owner, and sold it.
The buyer took the car to the Department of Motor Vehicles on Oct. 13 to register it but was unable to do so because the vehicle had been reported as stolen.
Auburn is along Interstate 80 about 30 miles northeast of Sacramento.
