Shopping on eBay ended badly for a Trotters Ridge man.
The man told Westlake Police he had purchased a 30-inch computer monitor from an eBay seller in August for $650. Instead of a monitor, he got a small box of rubber bands. When he complained to the seller, he received another small box, this one empty.
He reported the matter to Westlake Police so eBay would investigate.
Out of Gas
Someone drilled a hole in the gas tank of a 2011 Nissan Rogue that belongs to a Canterbury Road woman. The damage happened the night of Sept. 17 and is estimated at $1,000. Police have no suspects.
A Bobby Lane man discovered that someone had cut the lock of his portable storage pod sometime before 6 p.m. on Sept. 19. After the lock was broken, however, nothing was taken from the pod. Police have no suspects.
