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.
