A man trying to sell his camera on Craiglist, says he had it stolen instead, but not before using it to get a picture of the thief.

The victim, who asked only to be identified as Wes, says he posted a Canon EOS-1D Mark IV camera body on Craigslist for $3,375.

A man named Keith swapped a few emails and text messages with him, until they agreed to meet Sunday afternoon at the bowling alley Pin Strikes in Stockbridge. Keith said he was a firefighter and bowling a few games there with his buddies.

"He was very articulate and nice. There were no red flags," said Wes.

Wes said he liked the spot, because it was a public place in broad daylight. He even thought about how he would check to make sure the money exchanged wasn't counterfeit. But the deal never got that far.
