DALLAS –– Dallas police last week arrested a 41-year-old woman who allegedly set up a pair of Craigslist meetings and helped an unknown suspect rob the buyer at gunpoint.
Jacqueline Edwards was charged with aggravated robbery and booked into jail on Feb. 14. Bond was set at $50,500. According to an arrest affidavit, Edwards used Craigslist to set up a meeting on Feb. 7 to sell a black 2005 Suzuki Aero.
The victim began sending text messages to a person named “Jackie” on Christmas Eve. Eventually, the two settled on Friday, Feb. 7 as a date to meet up. ‘Jackie’ had the man meet her in an alley beside her home in the 9800 block of Glengreen Drive.
Edwards handed the man the keys and walked inside her residence to get the title. Soon, another man arrived and opened the back door to the home and yelled, “Jackie” inside. The two spoke briefly and the unknown suspect then approached the buyer.
The document says he pulled a revolver and pointed it at the buyer’s head and demanded money. The victim handed his wallet over and the man fled. Edwards, the affidavit alleges, walked out of the home after the incident in time to watch the victim leave.
The warrant was issued four days later. Edwards was questioned and charged at Jack Evans Police Headquarters on Feb. 13. The affidavit says she’s suspected in a similar robbery two days after the first incident. She allegedly corresponded with the second victim using her same number and a listing posted to Craigslist.
She set up the meeting at the same location and, again, a man matching the unknown suspect’s description arrived and robbed the victim at gunpoint.
“The unknown suspect description is similar in both offenses and the weapon is described as a revolver in both offenses,” the affidavit says.
Edwards, according to the document, gave police no information regarding the mystery suspect.
