This Craigslist Poster is Looking for a High School Student to Infiltrate a Home Theft Ring as a Paid Informant

Right up front, it goes without saying that this is among the more bizarre posts we've come across on Craigslist in awhile, and that's saying something. 

The gist of the posting goes like this: Someone, and from the looks of it, a private citizen, wants to pay a male, African American Garfield Heights high school student with a criminal history to infiltrate some sort of home theft ring, presumably involving high school students, in exchange for cold hard cash. We responded to the ad, because: journalism, and we'll let you know if we hear back.
