St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - St. Louis County Police say a Craigslist post led them to a car thief.
Court documents indicate that a car owner reported that she started her car during a cold day in March and left it running with the keys inside and the doors unlocked. A few minutes later, the woman said she walked outside and the car was gone. Police say they traced the car to an ad on Craigslist.
21-year-old Aubrey Watkins is being held in connection to the theft. Police say Watkins said he bought the car from a friend and knew it was stolen.
St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Missouri House members began hearings today on how the state deals with failing school districts.
A bill passed by the Senate in February calls for allowing students enrolled in struggling schools to transfer to a better one within their home district. Only if students could not get into a better school in their home district, would they be allowed to transfer to another district. In those cases the unaccredited district would pay for some of the tuition.
