Bank of America customer robbed during Craigslist exchange

Police: Armed robber uses Craigslist to set up meeting at bank's parking lot


LAUDERHILL, Fla. – A masked man robbed a Bank of America customer at the Lauderhill branch's parking lot on Wednesday afternoon. 

Lt. Gregory Slowsky said the victim was set to meet a fellow Craigslist user who pretended to be selling a car. 

The two set up a meeting at the bank's parking lot, 4400 Inverrary Blvd., to make the exchange, Slowsky said. But there was no deal. 

Instead of getting the car, a masked man took his cash, a witness said. 

Lauderhill detectives were investigating the case. Slowsky said they had a description of the subject and a partial tag of the car he used to get away with the undisclosed amount of cash.

Police did not release the surveillance video.
