Cops: Suspects use LetGo app to rob at least 2 victims in Gwinnett

Gwinnett County police are searching for two men they believe have robbed multiple victims after meeting them through marketplace app LetGo.

The first robbery allegedly occurred on July 24. A victim met someone using the name “LRN J” on LetGo that said he was interested in buying an iPhone from her. The victim and “LRN J” agreed to meet at a Norcross deli to complete the sale. The victim was met by two men. One of the men asked to “test” the victim’s phone; when she gave it to him, he said he didn’t have the money to pay for it and both men ran away, according to police.

The second robbery allegedly occurred July 31. The victim in that case had arranged to sell a video game console with a man identified as “LRN J” on LetGo and they agreed  to meet at a Duluth gas station. The victim was met by two men, one of whom said he did not have enough money to buy the console and went into the gas station. As the victim began to pack up the console, the second man grabbed it and ran away, according to police.

Both suspects are described as being around 6 feet tall and weighing between 160 and 170 lbs. One had an afro and both were “unshaven,” police said.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Gwinnett County detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Crime Stoppers tips may be rewarded with up to $2,000 if they lead to an arrest or indictment.
