ALBANY - Police are reminding people of the dangers of trying to set up meetings to sell items on websites like Facebook.

They say two young people recently were robbed when they set up a meeting on Facebook to sell sneakers.

One incident happened near Albany High School.

Police say the person claiming they wanted to buy the sneakers pulled out a gun, and stole them.

The second incident happened at Westland Hills Park in Albany.

In this case, police say two buyers punched a person in the face, and took off with the sneakers.

18-year-old Devon Davis, 20-year-old Justin Feliciano and a 14-year-old are under arrest.
