LACEY – A safe zone for Craigslist or other online transactions might be coming to town, officials said.

With the amount of purchases being made online at sites like Craigslist or eBay, Lacey might create a safe zone in town for people to make their exchanges, Mayor Peter Curatolo said. This way, there is a public place to go to instead of having a stranger come to residents’ homes.

The location has not been decided yet, he said. That location would likely be available for a few hours a month, so it would not be a burden to local police.
