A 19-year-old Oakland man has been charged with two counts of armed robbery in connection with alleged robberies of victims he met through Craigslist. Oakland police said Cas Black also is a suspect in a string of similar robberies between Aug. 22 and Oct. 22. They said Black placed ads on Craigslist, was contacted by potential customers and then robbed them at gunpoint when they arrived to buy the items.
Black was arrested on Nov. 9 but Oakland police didn’t announce his arrest until Thursday night. He has already been arraigned and is scheduled to return to Alameda County Superior Court on Wednesday for a pretrial hearing. He is being held at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin in lieu of $150,000 bail.
