DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Deerfield Township man is behind bars, accused of trying to sell a stolen van on Craigslist.

Police say a Kentucky couple contacted them after they found the fan on the Web site and suspected it was stolen.

The couple was interested in buying the van, but when they met with the seller, Abduvokhid Ismailov, 25, they said he became nervous when they started requesting information about the van.

The van had been stolen in Tennessee. When Ismailov showed up to make the deal, detectives from the Warren County Sheriff's Office were in place. Ismailov tried to flee, but his path was blocked by detectives and he was taken into custody without incident.

Ismailov is charged with one count of receiving stolen property. He is being held in the Warren County Jail.
