Man convicted in Eads home invasion robbery
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man was convicted Friday of an aggravated robbery and burglary in Eads that prosecutors say was set up by a woman the victim met online.
Devin Rogers, 31, was convicted by a jury after a weeklong trial. He will be sentenced in August.
A 57-year-old man told county deputies that on April 17, 2017, Rogers and another man broke into his house on Latte Lake Cove as he was entertaining a woman he met that day on Craigslist, according to prosecutors.
Rogers, who was armed with a pistol, ordered the man to give up his wallet and fired a shot into the ceiling. The woman left with the two men and the victim ran to a neighbor’s house to call for help.
He later noticed his laptop was missing and some of his credit cards had been used.
The second intruder was never identified.
