Police: Michigan teenager used Snapchat to rob men

July 8, 2018 GMT

WARREN, Mich. (AP) — Police accuse a Michigan teenager and two men of using the social media app Snapchat to orchestrate armed robberies.

Detroit’s WXYZ-TV cites Warren police as saying 19-year-old Sara Rowles, her 21-year-old boyfriend, Jackson Krosweck, and his friend Finzie Jones were charged Friday with armed robbery.

Rowles allegedly used Snapchat to lure men to meet up with her, then invited them inside her car under the premise of engaging in sexual activity. Police say that’s when the trio would rob the victim’s wallet and phone at gunpoint.


Police say at least five men fell victim last month.

The next court appearance for the three is on July 19. It wasn’t immediately clear if the suspects had lawyers yet. Police didn’t have information on their legal representation.
