Victims robbed after making Craigslist deal

MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - Two people were robbed Friday morning after selling a car to someone they met on Craigslist.

The incident happened just before 1:30 a.m. in the 3400 block of Burbank Avenue.

The victims told police that they had just met an individual and sold him a car from an ad on Craigslist. After the transaction of cash for the vehicle, the buyer drove away.

As the two victims were walking back towards the garage, two unknown males dressed in all black and wearing black ski masks approached them with assault rifles and yelled that they were DEA agents. One of the men fired a round in the air and ordered the victims to the ground.

The suspects took the cash from the transaction and one of the victim's wallets.

The suspects fled north on Jackson Lane, possibly in a gray Saturn.
