Yesterday, we posted a reminder about our Safe Exchange Zone and encouraged citizens to conduct transactions in the lobby of our police department. Today, we will share an incident from last night that highlights the very real risks associated with meeting people to buy or sell merchandise. Just after 9:00 p.m., a victim flagged down an officer and advised that he had just been robbed outside of Cinemark. He said that he communicated with a buyer through the Letgo application and they agreed to meet outside of the movie theater for the sale of two iPhone 8 Plus phones. The victim drove up to Boca from Broward County, arriving with his girlfriend and her child who remained in the vehicle. The victim met with two males at the valet stand and during the transaction, the two males grabbed the phones from the victim’s hands and ran away. The victim chased the suspects and at some point, one round was fired into the wall of the theater. The victim advised he did not intend to fire his weapon, but he may have accidentally discharged a round. No one was injured and the suspects fled the area. Both suspects were black males between 18 and 25 years of age. One of the suspects identified himself as “Quan” and was described as approximately 6’0” tall with a slim build. The second suspect identified himself as “Jay” and was described as approximately 5’9” tall with a medium build. If you have any information in reference to this investigation, please contact Detective Kurdys at (561) 338-1377.

Last week BocaChief posted about an online transaction that turned deadly in Davie, FL.
