    SDPD arrested a man Wednesday for fraudulently taking deposits from people on Craigslist looking for an apartment to rent.

    Anthony Jospeh Green responded to multiple people looking for an apartment on the site claiming he was deploying with the Navy as a helicopter rescue pilot swimmer. He would claim he had a furnished apartment for a low price, but that he needs a financial deposit before he deploys.

    So far six people have been identified as victims of his crimes.

    If you believe that you were a victim of an unreported crime involving Green, you are asked to contact the San Diego Police Department at (619) 531-2000, San Diego Police Acting Detective Sarah Calvert at (619) 692-4800 or call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
