The Columbia Police Department is looking for a woman accused of stealing a PlayStation 4 from someone who was selling the item on Facebook marketplace.
It happened Tuesday night in the parking lot of Lazer Lanes on Grindstone Parkway.
“The victim arranged to sell a Playstation 4 that was listed on Facebook Marketplace for $200,” CPD spokesman Jeff Pitts said in a press release. “When the victim arrived, the suspect that wanted to purchase the item displayed a weapon and took the item without giving money to the seller.”
CPD said people are welcome to use the station at Sixth and Walnut as a meeting place for selling items. The lobby area is well lit and staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact CPD at 573-874-7652 or Crimestoppers at 573-875-8477 to remain anonymous.
The robber was driving a gray GMC Envoy.
