Memphis, TN (WREG) — 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 Memphis, Tennessee.

Instead, two men with guns met the man and robbed him.

As police investigated this robbery, they noticed 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, a 17-year-old male, 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.
