A 22-year-old Evanston man is accused in a rather elaborate car theft scheme.

Prosecutors say Eddie Simmons sold a stolen 2010 Toyota Camry to a buyer via Craigslist last Wednesday. He apparently had attached a GPS to the car and then tracked the car down and stole it right back.

Simmons was arrested Friday trying to sell the car again, this time to undercover police officers. He was ordered held on $100,000 bail.
