Sons’ ashes, dogs stolen after fake Craigslist post

SPRING VALLEY, Calif. - A fake Craigslist post may be to blame for causing damage for two rental units in Spring Valley.

Two dogs were stolen after a fake Craigslist ad was posted.

Two women who rent apartment units at the same complex in Spring Valley told FOX 5 people ransacked their homes, stole their dogs and even took the ashes of one of the women's two sons. The ashes were eventually returned, but the dogs were still missing.

Trina Green is thankful her two stillborn sons' ashes were returned, but she’s heartbroken her dog Petty and her stillborn sons' baby blanket and pictures are still missing.

“I want my dog back and I want my son's belongings back, bring me back their stuff.  I can never get any of that stuff back anymore,” said Green. “Hospital blanket, the rest of the obituaries for Christian, all of Andrew's obituaries and pictures that they take when a child passes away. They give you last pictures and those are gone.”

Green is among three other units broken into following a fake online post stating the people who lived at the 9400 block of Eucalyptus Drive were leaving the country and everything inside was free.

Green filed a crime report with the San Diego County Sheriff Department and other tenants put up signs to keep intruders out.

“Everything that was in here was gone. The portable heater was right here. There were end tables, lamps and a mini refrigerator,” said Green.

Like her neighbor, Green said it isn’t about the big material items. She just wants her dog Petty back and what she had to remember her sons.
