A Newfane man was charged with second-degree obstruction of government administration on Wednesday after a Craigslist sale went sour.

According to the report by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, Robert C. Tester, 26, made a deal with another man to purchase a used Play Station 3 for $170. When the seller arrived at Tester's Ridge Road home, Tester asked if he could take the unit inside to make sure it worked before paying. He then returned to the door with a different Play Station 3, handing it to the seller.

When Tester refused to give the seller his original Play Station 3 - or the $170 - the seller called NCSO, who asked Tester to either return the Play Station or give the seller his money. Tester told NCSO that the Play Station was no longer in his home. A search of the home, however, found that it was hidden behind the couch and buried under blankets.

The game system was given back to the intended seller and Tester was arrested by NCSO and charged. He was issued an appearance ticket for Town of Newfane Court for Tuesday.
