SOUTHBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) _ A Connecticut man who advertised his all-terrain vehicle for sale on Craigslist thought it was worth driving two hours to Massachusetts to meet a potential buyer who had offered $100 more than the asking price.

He should have stayed home.

Police say that prospective buyer, Hector Soto of Southbridge, asked Feb. 4 if he could take a test drive. Police allege he jumped on the ATV, turned the corner, and disappeared.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that the Shelton, Conn., man called police a few minutes later.

Police found the ATV in a garage rented by Soto last week. He said he bought it from a man in Springfield.

Soto pleaded not guilty Friday in Dudley District Court to receiving stolen property valued at more than $250.
