According to our news partner MLT News, the Mountlake Terrace Police department has set up an area outside their station where Craig's List shoppers can meet to exchange goods and payment.

In response to stories of people being robbed or even assaulted when meeting others for an internet transaction, the police have set up an area, marked with signs, which has full video surveillance.

“If someone is not willing to make a transaction in a police station parking lot, heed that as a warning,” city officials stated in a press release 
“At the very least, you could be buying stolen property, so exercise care when making this transaction.”

The Police Station is located at the Civic Center, at 5906 232nd St SW, Mountlake Terrace.
