Police: Thieves tried to sell items back to victim

Updated:

DENVER (AP) - Denver police have arrested four suspects accused of unwittingly trying to sell items they stole back to the burglary victim.
    
KMGH-TV reports Lacinda Robinson discovered the items missing at her home on Friday and drove to the parking lot of a nearby fast-food restaurant to report the theft. That's where she says she was approached by two people asking if she wanted to buy a video game set.
    
Robinson says she was startled when another person walked up wearing her jacket. She went next door to a gas station and found two off-duty police officers who made the arrests.
    
Robinson told police she is still missing an iPad, a flat-screen TV and some cash.
