WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A Dayton man pleads guilty to a Craigslist car theft scam.

On Monday, Trevon Broomfield, 21, appeared before a Warren County judge to and pled guilty to Failure to Comply with the Order of a Police Officer, Felonious Assault on a Police Officer, Receiving Stolen Property, and three counts of Theft.

These charges arose from the theft of cars listed on Craigslist and a high-speed pursuit of a stolen car which nearly caused serious injuries to an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper.

On December 8, 2012, Broomfield stole a car from a Franklin man after it was listed on Craigslist.

The stolen car was recovered in Moraine, Ohio after being sold to another individual.

On December 29, 2012, Broomfield met a Mason couple at a church parking lot in Mason. After a test drive, he stole their Chevrolet Tahoe, which had also been listed on Craigslist.

That vehicle was sold to a man in Springfield, Ohio and was later recovered. Credit cards and a firearm were also taken in the Mason theft.


After a test drive, Broomfield drove off in the car at a high rate of speed. The victim immediately notified West Chester police who saw the vehicle on Tylersville Road about an hour later.

West Chester officers pursued the vehicle northbound on I-75 until it exited at State Route 63, went through the Monroe Premium Outlets, and then continued eastbound on State Route 63, driving in the westbound lanes at a high rate of speed.

Officials say that chase reached speeds of up to 120 miles per hour.

An Ohio trooper put down stop sticks to end the chase but Broomfield attempted to go around them, hitting the troopers car, injuring her.

Broomfield was captured after the crash.

After pleading guilty, Broomfield was immediately sentenced to seven years in prison.
