I wasn't sure how to exactly file this...
First of all - craigslist.org is a Web site that allows people to post free online advertisements. For example, when my building was running a garage sale, I posted it online and people were able to use that to find their way to the building.
It's a nice site if you want to post things like that for free.
However, sometimes people take a good thing and do bad things with it.
In Oregon, someone posted an ad saying they had to leave the area, and that everything he owned on the property was free for the taking. Of course, people swarmed to the site, taking everything he owned. Even after he showed up and tried to stop people, some people would not stop taking things!
Of course, police are trying to track down the person who posted the ad, but as of now, no luck.
