Four people were arrested Saturday afternoon in southwest Las Vegas after a Craigslist dishwasher deal went awry.

Police said that a business deal turned into a disagreement near Decatur Boulevard and Canary Diamond Avenue, north of Blue Diamond Road. One of the men involved flagged down a passing Nevada Highway Patrol vehicle and told them that his money had been stolen.

When additional NHP and Las Vegas police officers arrived, they initially found no evidence of a crime or anyone's money being stolen. One person was arrested for having drugs in their car and the car was towed.

Three others were arrested on warrants.
