More adventures in roommate searching on Craigslist

I had a guy last night contact me via the Craigslist ad. He helpfully gave me a full name and a phone number, which was enough to run a simple background check on him.

His criminal record — each line represents a separate offense — includes:

  • Harassment 1st Degree/Probation Violation
  • Petty Theft ($100 or less)
  • Disorderly Conduct/Battery
  • Criminal Mischief/Domestic Abuse/Assault
  • Harrassment 1st Degree
  • Harassment 1st Degree
  • Prostitution
  • Assault on a Peace Officer
  • Stalking (2nd Offense)
  • Theft (5th Degree)
  • Theft (5th Degree)
  • Interference w/Official Acts
  • Harassment (3rd Degree)
  • Simple Assault
  • Theft (5th Degree)
  • Domestic Abuse Assault
  • Criminal Mischief 5th Degree
  • Assault
  • Theft (5th Degree)
  • Theft (5th Degree)
  • Assault
  • Theft (4th Degree)
  • Stalking
  • Assault
  • Harassment (2nd Degree)
  • Robbery (2nd Degree)
  • Violation of Parole
  • Disseminate Obscene Material to A Minor
  • Assault
  • Theft 5th Degree
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Domestic Abuse Assault
  • Stalking

He’s big on theft, sometimes getting charged twice within as many months. He’s also a repeat Stalking offender.

Perfect roommate material!

How is this guy out walking around? He’s obviously not a candidate for rehabilitation.

I will never, ever do anything off Craigslist again without having a way to look up the person with whom I am dealing.

No wonder so many people gets scammed/attacked/robbed/etc off Craigslist!

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Or perhaps that was the Cantina in Mos Eisley spaceport.

Whatever, it still applies.
