An accused thief wasn’t too smart when trying to get rid of some stolen loot. 

Police say Adam Romero was trying to sell them on Facebook. 

The ad included pictures of the appliances while they wre still in the owner’s Rio Rancho home. 

It’s unclear how Romero got the big items out without being detected, but police set up a sting posing as a buyer and arrested Romero at the designated meeting spot.
