N.L. man asks al­leged thief on Ki­jiji to bring back his lum­ber

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - NATIONAL NEWS -

FLATROCK, N.L. — A New­found­land man used Ki­jiji to ap­peal to an al­leged lum­ber thief to re­turn his goods — or he would go to po­lice with in­for­ma­tion cap­tured on a hid­den cam­era.

The man posted an ad on the on­line buy­ing and sell­ing site for the per­son he says made off with 30 sheets of half-inch ply­wood.

The wood was at a home con­struc­tion site in Flatrock when it was al­legedly taken Sun­day by some­one wear­ing a grey jacket and Maple Leafs cap. But it ap­pears the man ac­cused of tak­ing the ply­wood could have used more dis­cre­tion. The ad — which has been re­moved — said the cul­prit did not seem to no­tice that he had backed the li­cence plate of his blue Ford F-150 right in front of a hid­den cam­era and then looked di­rectly into the lens of the cam­era. Also, it says a woman in the ve­hi­cle shouted out his name sev­eral times.

The poster of the ad said he just wanted his ply­wood back and a let­ter of apol­ogy by Fri­day, or he would take de­tails from the cam­era to po­lice.
