In Gary, authorities are reporting more cases of people answering Craig's List ads and being robbed, and again, each instance has taken place in the five-hundred block of Lake Street. Gary Police Corp. Gabrielle King says on Tuesday, at 1:30pm, a 71 year old responded to an ad at that location, and was instructed to go to the second floor where he was robbed at gunpoint of his cell phone and cash. Corp. King says this was the fifth or sixth incident at that location.
Corp. King says on Labor Day, three Fort Wayne residents were also robbed, responding to a Craig's List ad for a car, but this time in the five-hundred block of Pennsylvania, by a male subject with a gun who took their cell phones and wallets. Gary Police urge caution when purchasing any items off Craig's List and suggest conducting the sale in a public place.
