Craigslist sale leads to stolen police gear

A suspicious camera sale brokered through Craigslist has led the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office to a cache of stolen police gear taken from one of its undercover vehicles more than five months ago.

The case began taking shape after a Sandpoint woman called detectives in late September after growing leery of an expensive camera being sold for well under its value by a young man she said knew little about its complicated features.

That man turned out to be Nick A. Peters, investigators say, who used to live near a detective whose unmarked police car was prowled in early May.
