GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County deputies said they are investigating two recent robberies that occurred after victims set up meetings up to purchase items via the “LetGo” app.

The first incident occurred on November 17 around 7:15 p.m. at the Burger King on Pelham Road. Deputies said the victim agreed to meet the suspects at the restaurant to buy a cell phone. One of the two suspects pulled out a gun and demanded the victim’s money. Deputies said the suspects, two males between the ages of 17 and 35, fled in a dark blue sedan that was also occupied by a woman and two toddler-aged children.

The second incident occurred on November 19 at 2 p.m. at the Walmart on Woodruff Road. Deputies said the victim in this case was also attempting to buy a cell phone. The two suspects, both males, arrived in a red Kia Sportage. Deputies said one of the men punched the victim during the transaction, then pulled out a handgun and stole money from the victim’s hand.

One of the suspects was wearing a yellow, red and orange coat, and the other was wearing a light blue coat.

Deputies said surveillance images of the incidents are not available.

Anyone with information about either robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 864-23-CRIME.

Deputies suggest that people who use Letgo and similar services to buy and sell items meet at the Greenville County Law Enforcement Center, located at 4 McGee Street to conduct the transactions.
