A North Carolina man has been arrested, accused of robbing a Georgetown man who had a motorcycle arrested on Craigslist.
Georgetown Police Capt. Nelson Brown says the FBI Violent Crime Task Force arrested 19-year-old Tevon Allison in Gastonia, N.C.
On Sept. 18 Allison allegedly responded to the Craigslist ad and agreed to meet the seller in the WalMart parking lot.
Once the meeting began Allison and another person, who has not been arrested, reportedly robbed the seller at gunpoint then fled the scene.
Allison is now being held at the Georgetown County Detention Center charged with armed robbery, robbery while armed with a deadly weapon, grand larceny and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
