The victim of a Craigslist robbery had the foresight to snap a photo of the suspect moments before the crime took place. Now, police are requesting the public’s help locating that suspect.
According to police, the victim arranged to meet the suspect at the Stonybrook Commons Apartments in the 3000 block of Redskin Drive Jan. 25.
The suspect, who identified himself as Zach, offered to trade his older computer and $600 in exchange for the victim’s newer computer.
Once inside the victim’s vehicle, the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded money, the computer and the victim’s cellphone.
The photo the victim had taken was automatically uploaded to Apple’s iCloud service, allowing him to turn it over to police.
