After the infamous craigslist killer we have a new entry in the field with “craigslist robber”. The crown in set on the head of a Desert Hot Spring resident: the 21 years old Darius Griffin. This Californian man is accused of terrorizing the neighborhood in question and would bait his victims with fake premises of giving them luxury cars only to have them defenseless at his mercy and rob them of their money and valuables.
Reports claim that Griffin uses this id: email@example.com and claims to be selling a BMW. He asks the people to bring money in cash on them if they are interested in buying the car at all. His routine is to have the person come to his side and meet him in a deserted parking lot or apartment complex where he comes armed with gun. He would be violent with the victims and wouldn’t show any mercy at all. But a sting operation became the end of his regime when the “client” he met this time turned out to be an undercover cop.
The police released a warning for the locals to be very careful when making online deals. The public is advised to never agree to meet at deserted places at shady part of the day rather go for places with abundance of people in broad day light. A genuine seller won’t ever object to these demands. Trusting your instincts is also in the handbook. Police warns you to bail on any sign of discomfort you feel while making any deal online.
