MEMPHIS, Tenn. —  Instead of looking at a car he saw on Craigslist, a man became the victim of a robbery.

The man agreed to meet the seller in the 3400 block of Starsdale.

As police investigated this robbery, they notices a series of robberies where the victims responded to car sales ads on Craigslist and were robbed during the encounter.

Christopher Patton,18, was charged with Aggravated Robbery in connection with two of the robberies.

A 16-year-old male was charged with four counts of Aggravated Robbery and one count of Attempted Aggravated Robbery.

The third suspect, male, 17, was charged with Attempted Aggravated Robbery in connection with one case.

Police advise to always meet in a public place, even at a police substation for your safety.


  • Democrats at work

    Dang I was sure some white trailer park trash was doing this!! Instead it is the Democrat plantation workers taking what isn’t theirs again. Why am I not surprised? Obama says he has created 8 million jobs, why aren’t they working?

    • Q

      You make a good observation. The jobs were created. However, the reason whey aren’t working maybe due to a background check, drug test, credit check, just maybe.

      • There are no jobs

        Well actually the jobs HAVEN’T been created. When Obama took office in 2009 there were 146 million people working, mostly full time jobs, according to the BLS. Today there are still 146 million people working, with a larger percentage part-time jobs. So if he created 8 million, then he lost another 8 million since the numbers haven’t changed. However due to population increase, we now have over 92 million people of working age who do not have a job. It is the largest non-participation rate since records have been kept, with only a 62% labor participation rate. Look it up at the BLS website.
