MORE CRIME: Springfield man charged after alleged fourth overdose
On Dec. 1, two other victims responded to a rental ad on Craigslist for the same property. The victims also met with Sarah Hastings at a pharmacy on Lagonda Avenue, signed a lease agreement and gave the woman an undisclosed amount of cash. The victims also received a receipt and a key, but when they arrived at the home, they found the other victims were already living there,
It was later determined the property was owned by a local realty company and was listed for rent on a different website. An employee arrived and told police a scam has been occurring recently with their rental properties where people will post the property on Craigslist or Facebook, meet people at the property, have them sign a lease agreement and take cash from them.
At the scene, victims and police looked up Durden’s Facebook page and all agreed she was allegedly the person who had deceived them as Hastings, according to a police report. Durden’s photo also matched her booking photo from prior arrests, officers said.
