SPOKANE, Wash. -- Police are looking for a pair of thieves that ripped off a Spokane couple through an ad on Craigslist.

Lindsey Tofsrud and Jason Gehrman posted in the free section of the website. The couple is moving to Seattle and wanted to get rid of some extra materials from a remodeling project.

They say two guys showed up to their home. One came and talked to them and the other stayed in the car. While they were talking to the man the other guy went inside their home and stole cash, credit cards and keys to their cars.

Investigators are looking for the suspects and their red SUV with Oregon plates.

The couple is offering a $200 reward for the person who returns their stuff.
