BELTON — Two men who used Craigslist to lure a man into a robbery were sentenced in Bell County District Court on Tuesday morning.
Judge Fancy Jezek revoked the probation of 20-year-old Tre’quan Shavae Locke, sentencing him to 10 years in prison. At a separate hearing, Jezek sentenced 17-year-old Travon Andre Jones to 120 days in Bell County Jail and 10 years of deferred adjudication.
Under deferred adjudication, Jones could face the full range of punishment on the charge, from five years to life in prison, if he violates the conditions of his probation.
Locke and Jones were two of three men arrested in connection with a robbery that occurred Jan. 25, 2013.
According to an arrest affidavit, the victim arrived at the intersection of Minthorn and Weiss in reference to an ad on Craigslist to purchase a set of rims for his vehicle.
When the victim arrived he was asked to sit in a Crown Victoria. He was robbed at gunpoint by three men, who took his money and made him get out of the vehicle before fleeing the scene, according to police reports. Officers with the Killeen Independent School District also heard the call and located the suspect vehicle that was fleeing from them. The suspects abandoned their vehicle on Green Oaks Dr. and fled on foot. School and city police officers began searching the area.
Three men, Jones, Locke and 19-year-old Antonio Marquise Belford were arrested.
Belford was sentenced to 10 years deferred adjudicated in June, according to court records.
