HILLSBORO, Ore. – An Oregon man has been arrested after he allegedly stole a ladder from a man and then called him later to sell him a ladder.
Washington County sheriff's deputies say Kevin Gilman faces theft and burglary charges after a man reported seeing him with a stolen ladder last month and detained him until deputies arrived.
Shortly after his release from jail, Gilman allegedly called the man asking if he was interested in purchasing a ladder. The man called authorities again.
Deputies say Gilman apparently did not realize it was the same person who had assisted in his first arrest.
