Four Arrested in Atlanta Shoe Robberies
Four male robbers were arrested in connection to a Facebook sneaker scheme in Gwinnett County. Gwinnett County is nearby Atlanta where at least four sneaker robberies took place. Reports say the suspects set up a meeting from the social media website to purchase sneakers for more than the asking price from the seller.
The plan was to snatch and run with the shoes when the seller showed up. One robbery led to the victim chasing the robbers only to be opposed with a handgun. Authorities are even reported that one of the victims was robbed at gunpoint.
Roshawn Jones, 20 years old, Tyrese Watkins, 17 years old, and two unidentified males are in custody in connection to violence over shoes. Be careful buying anything from people off the street. You never know what they have planned.
