COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - 11 News has learned a man convicted after finding roommates on Craigslist and then stealing from them is now on the run.
Tyshawn Gayle was sentenced to five years in prison followed by five years of mandatory parole in April 2018. New documents 11 News obtained from the Department of Corrections show Gayle was given an opportunity to go to a halfway house at the start of 2019 and then just walked away.
"He's a con artist," said Mark Hendrix. "He obviously played the system and got away with it."
