Pa. home inspector arrested for Craigslist scam

LEBANON COUNTY, Pa. (WPVI) -- A Pennsylvania property inspector is accused of trying to sell items that had been left behind in foreclosed homes.

Police say Justin Archer listed left over appliances on Craigslist.

He was allegedly caught when a couple showed up to a home in Lebanon County, looking to purchase one of the items, only to find a real estate agent was there, trying to sell the entire house, instead.

Authorities believe Archer also ran the scam with several listed homes in Berks, Lancaster and Chester Counties.

Any victims are asked to call police.
