Colorado man reports Craigslist liaison as a burglar after girlfriend comes home early

You can call this sordid tale a case of boy meets girl (on Craigslist), boy sets up rendezvous with girl, boy’s real girlfriend comes home early, boy calls police to report girl as burglar, boy gets charged with falsely reporting an intrusion.  You know, that old chestnut.

Listen up guys—it’s never a good idea to cheat on your wife and/or girlfriend.  But if you absolutely must taste the forbidden fruit of another woman, whatever you do, don’t do what this guy did and have the liaison at your house while your significant other is out, for the very reason that she may come home early.  And if she does, definitely don’t call the cops and report your “other woman” as a burglar, because in the end you’re going to get in trouble from a) your girlfriend/wife, b) the other woman, and c) the cops.

Thus endeth the lesson.

Kevin Gaylor, a 24-year-old from Colorado Springs, met a woman via Craigslist, and set up a secret rendezvous at his house.  Gaylor set it up so that the woman would arrive at his house after 3 a.m., which would have been fine had his girlfriend not come home first.  That’s when things really went south.

From CBS News

Police say when a Colorado Springs man’s girlfriend unexpectedly came home just before a woman he’d met online was due to visit, he called police to report his new acquaintance as a burglar.

Police say Gaylor had invited a woman he met on Craigslist to come to his home after 3 a.m. Wednesday so they could get better acquainted, but his girlfriend came home first.

According to police, when the other woman arrived, Gaylor called police and falsely reported an intrusion.


Gaylor was formally charged with a misdemeanor of false reporting to authorities.  Hopefully the 24-year-old has learned his lesson, and his next girlfriend will be of the inflatable variety.
