Police say people responding to Facebook ad were robbed in Severn

Anne Arundel County police say two people from Virginia came to the county Thursday to buy a cell phone that had been advertised on Facebook — and say they wound up being robbed.

Police said at 11:22 p.m., officers responded to Still Meadows Drive ear in Severn for a report of a robbery, and met with two victims.

They told police they had answered an ad on Facebook to purchase a cell phone. They were met by four men at Still Meadows Drive, and when they showed their money, one of the men pushed one of the victims and took their money and a phone. The victims tried to get the money and phone back, and one of the suspects pointed toward his waist and implied he had a weapon, police said.

The suspects, all described as black males between 19 and 25, then fled, police said. The victims told police the suspects got into a red Dodge Charger. Police and K9 units searched the area, but they were not found.
