Two more messengers tricked into facilitating robberies

There were two more cases this week of messengers being used as robbery dupes

The real robber is on a telephone far away.

The messengers are contracted by newspaper ads. Then the messenger is instructed to go to a business for a pickup.

When the messenger arrives, he reports in to his supposed employer who asks that the cell phone be handed to the employee of the store. By telephone the robber announces that the messenger has a firearm and that the  employee should deliver to him all the available cash.

The messenger leaves with the money not knowing that he has just participated in a robbery, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

Later the messenger delivers the money to his supposed employer.
