A Buffalo man was charged with grand larceny and burglary for renting out a house he doesn’t own on Troupe Street in South Buffalo through Craigslist, authorities said.

Daniel Loster, 29, who was arrested Monday, is accused of pocketing about $2,000 in rents from two victims, police said. The house used in the rental scam, according to police, had been owned by a man who died about three years ago. The house currently has a new owner, police added.
