You never know who might be selling hot merchandise on eBay

Normally, I avoid writing about petty crime, but this one is too good to pass up.

From SF Gate:

A Hillsboro mother found her daughter's missing winter coat on eBay, and now a teacher at the girl's elementary school faces charges of theft and computer crimes.

The teacher, who was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of her trial, claims she found the jacket in the lost and found.

Of course, Mom claims she had already checked there!

With all the alleged fencing that occurs on auction sites, this person is either very unlucky, or doesn't cover her tracks very well. I would have to recommend, she sticks with teaching elementary students.

A couple of days ago, I wrote about what might happen to credit cards and identification left haphazardly in a lost and found:

Airline employees and correctional officer arrested for credit card fraud
