WACO (August 20, 2014) A Waco man had bonded out Wednesday from the McLennan County Jail after he was arrested for exploiting an elderly person through a Craigslist scam.
Arthur Ray Goolsby, 27, posted a $5,000 bond and was released on a charge of exploitation of an elderly person, jail records showed.
Goolsby was arrested in connection with an earlier event during which he took deposit money from a 70-year-old victim for the purchase of a pick up truck that was advertised on Craigslist, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
Swanton said the victim paid a deposit but when he went to pick up the truck the seller had disappeared.
Investigators were able to identify a suspect and obtain a warrant, Swanton said.
Goolsby was arrested on the warrant last week in Bell County and transferred back to the McLennan County Jail on Tuesday.
