Craigslist: Landlord's nightmare in Tacoma

Thanks to an ad on Craigslist, a Tacoma, Wash., house went from empty rental to empty shell. The Internet ad invited readers to come to the address and take anything they wanted.

Response was strong. Neighbors reported strangers coming to the house and carrying away anything they could find, including the kitchen sink and the front door.

The landlord had recently evicted a tenant. Now that owner may be trying to subpoena records from Craigslist to determine who placed the giveaway ad.

Update: There's a soap-operatic twist to this story. Local news reports the recently evicted tenant was the landlord's own sister and that a family feud may have been the motivation for the ad.
