A woman suspected of stealing a package from a front porch and then attempting to sell the item on Craigslist was arrested Tuesday when Redding police responded to her ad.
Erin Marlene Casados, 33, of Anderson was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, and possession of heroin.
A Redding resident told police he ordered a popular European toilet fixture, known as a bidet, for $500, and despite UPS reporting the package had arrived, the man said it was nowhere to be found.
Police took the report, and then saw the item listed on Craigslist Tuesday morning.
An investigator replied to the ad via text offering $275 for the bidet. The woman agreed to meet him in the parking lot of Taco Bell on Old Alturas Road. Casados arrived with the bidet in her trunk and was arrested without incident.
The package had not been opened and the original packaging slip was still inside.
A further search of Casados’ car turned up heroin, a stolen wallet, checkbook and several other stolen packages. She has been booked into the Shasta County Jail.
