Two men face robbery and prostitution charges after police say they used online personal ads to arrange meetings then rob victims at gun point.
In November, Springdale police Department took aggravated robbery reports from three separate victims after they responded to these online ads.
Detectives tracked a telephone number used during the exchanges, leading them to an apartment located at Raintree/Foxfire Apartments. During a search, detectives found property belonging to the victims as well as property from unrelated residential burglaries.
Timothy Counts, 24, and Richard Rodriquez, 22, both of Springdale were arrested Wednesday on Receiving, Theft of Property, Promoting Prostitution, Breaking & Entering, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. They were taken to the Washington County Jail on Wednesday.
Police expect more arrests.
