BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Baton Rouge Police are searching for a man who they say has scammed Craigslist users out of $8,600.

Police say 30-year-old Larry Anthony Sherman posted an ad on Craigslist trying to sell used vehicles.

In November, Sherman listed a 2002 Toyota Camry for sale for $2,800. Then in December, Sherman listed a 2006 Nissan Maxima for $3,000. In January, Sherman listed a vehicle for $2,800 that was in an auction yard.

Police say that in each incident, Sherman would meet the potential buyers, collect the money and would never hand over the vehicle.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Larry Anthony Sherman is urged to contact the Financial Crimes Division at 225-389-3871 or Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867.
