Philadelphia Police arrested two teens in connections to a rash of robberies involving the popular classified Web site Craigslist.
Theodore Graham and Anthony Owens, both 16, are facing numerous charges following three armed robberies.
According to investigators, Graham and Owners allegedly lured three separate individuals to locations in Philadelphia under the premises that the victims would be purchasing items such as computers and television.
Upon arrival, each victim was robbed at gunpoint and had cash as well as cell phones taken from them. Investigators said none of the victims were seriously injured.
Both Graham and Owens were taken into custody on September 30.
Graham faces three counts and Owens faces two counts of the following: Criminal Conspiracy, Robbery, Possessing an Offensive Weapon, Possessing an Instrument of Crime, Terroristic Threats, Theft-Unlawful Taking, Theft-Receiving Stolen Property, Simple Assault and Recklessly Endangering another Person.
“The eyes are the windows of the soul”. So young to be so cold...shudder.
CL can’t handle too much more bad pub......
Maybe it’s time for their format to go away.
“Lured them under the premises?” More bad grammar, I think. Should be lured them on the premise.
SB “under the premise”.
It works both ways... Taking cash to a house is a bad idea. Meet in a public place for the transactions. I wish I had edited my comment earlier.
