Medical Lake woman's wallet stolen during Craigslist transaction

MEDICAL LAKE, Wash. – A family who was trying to sell piano said a prospective buyer robbed them Thursday morning.

The family was recently relocated to Medical Lake after selling their house. They invited a Craigslist contact over to discuss buying the piano and a man and woman showed up.

Natalya Kapustin said she allowed the woman inside to use the restroom. She said the woman must have seen her purse in the kitchen and took her wallet.

She described the woman had dark hair, glasses and tattoos. The man was tall with light hair. Kapustin said she called the number they had used to contact her and it was a Motel 6. She said they went to the location but the two weren’t there.

Kapustin said her credit cards have been used at places like Walmart and Jack in the Box.
