True love: Norwood man steals, then sells girlfriend’s cars on Craigslist

According to this Enquirer article, Norwood resident Adam Barker stole 3 cars, 3 LCD TVs, and a Nintendo Wii from his girlfriend Cristine Villarreal and her sister, then sold all the items but one of the cars on Craiglist. The girlfriend contacted the purchasers to let them know the items were stolen from her and her sister. The purchasers returned the goods to the women.

This isn't the first time Barker has stolen from his girlfriend. Just two years ago, he was convicted of stealing $300 from her checking account and was sentenced to 180 days in jail. He was arrested Sunday, and yesterday, a Hamilton County judge set Barker's bond at $5,000. He faces five counts of theft without consent, charges that carry a maximum prison sentence of six years, if he is convicted.
