Police arrest man suspected of robbing airman of PlayStation
MINDEN, LA (KSLA) - Authorities have arrested a Campti man suspected of robbing an active-duty Barksdale Air Force Base airman of a PlayStation.
In custody on a charge of armed robbery is 23-year-old Dylan Colby Smith. Minden police say additional charges are pending.
Smith is suspected of arranging to meet with the airman at a Minden business the evening of Nov. 18 to make an exchange they had arranged through a Barskdale yard sale group on Facebook.
Instead of handing over $250 for the PS4, Smith is accused of pulling out a black automatic pistol and fleeing with the gaming console.
He also is wanted in Natchitoches on a charge of simple burglary for allegedly climbing through a window to steal 2 cell phones from a house.
Investigators are looking into whether Smith could be responsible for other crimes similar to these.
