W all ow thanks to Craig Forchetti.He was a victim of Corey Jackson in june 09 where jackson stole foechettis ring also ans assaulted forchetti. Craig Forchetti was a prior investigator and set up a sting operation on craigslist that worked.Forchetti caught Corey Jackson w/ Phila Detectives in sept 09. Good work Craig Forchetti. Waiting for movie to come out about how "rel;entless you were in catching the thief.

Who are these people and where did they come from? Criminals from urban areas where crime is a way of life. I'm disgusted with the entire mess. And all the Johnnie Rotten developers who helped make this possible, they should be in jail for life rather than appearing at social gatherings.

Who is the guy that got robbed then turn around and caught the craigslist scammer. It is dangerous to take matters in your own hands but it is good you turned the thief over to the police. Good work &very clever of you to trick the thief that tricked you.Did you get a reward for stopping this thief? Hope to hear more about this story.. Dr. a.w

ESU-thiefs, drugs and you get to go home at night. Who needs to go to Prison to learn a trade. Maybe it's time to crack down on the drinking and other parties that go on all around. Some would think the School would take care of it's own-not "they don't live own Campus so it's not our responsibility". Don't forget to put all this in your Brochure!

I always felt that if the police offered to split the money, 50/50, found at a drug bust there would be a lot more tips, good tips.

WoW !!! I think That the Victim Craig Forchetti used great street smarts and Caught the thief.Its a shame he lost his ring worth all that money.Sounds like a good story for a movie as stated in all the news papers.I guess the thief didn;t realize he was robbing an investigator and must of been suprised when forchetti stung him with Police.
