According to law enforcement, the 20-year-old suspect used the online website Craigslist to set up a meeting in the parking lot of the TD Bank located on Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, New Jersey.

When the victim, a 22-year-old man from Hopatcong, arrived at the parking lot, the suspect allegedly stole the victim’s iPad and digital camera. The victim had advertised both items for sale on Craigslist.
