An Evanston man apparently found selling a car on Craigslist such a great experience that he decided to do it again — with the same car.

The Sun-Times and DNAinfo.com report that Eddie Simmons of the 2000 block of Dewey Avenue ended up in bond court Sunday after the second buyer of the car turned out to be an undercover Chicago police officer.

Simmons allegedly admitted to police that he’d entered the first buyer’s unlocked garage in Portage Park to retrieve the 2010 Toyota Camry that was no longer his. He was ordered held on $100,000 bond.
