Craigslist Armed Robber Pleads Guilty

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- A man pretending to sell iPhones on Craigslist, pleaded guilty to robbing the unsuspecting buyer at gunpoint, officials said. 

Deshawn Derr, 25, of Alexandria, advertised he was selling $2,500 worth of iPhones on the popular trading and ad site. 

"On June 17, 2011, Derr and a conspirator robbed a victim in Fairfax County at gunpoint. Court documents state that Derr approached the victim's car, opened the door, and while pointing a pistol at the victim stated, "You know how this is going to go." Derr then reached across the victim's body and took a bag containing approximately $2,500," officials said in a news release. 

Derr's alleged co-conspirator, David Shawn Ramsey, 41, of Prince George's County, Maryland, was arrested on a criminal complaint charging him conspiracy to commit robbery, officials said.
