Thug Tries to Rob Concealed Carry Permit Holder during Facebook Marketplace Meetup, Pays with His Life

A thug made a fatal mistake when he tried to rob a man by luring him into a Facebook Marketplace meetup trap.

The man and a friend had responded to a Facebook Marketplace ad for a vehicle sale in Peoria, Illinois.

Assuming the ad was genuine, they went to view the vehicle on Monday.

They met with a group of people in an alley around 5 pm, WMBD reported.

However, the meeting turned out to be a trap and the armed group of criminals tried to rob the mark.

Yet, unbeknown to the pack of crooks, the so-called “victim” was a concealed carry permit holder and wasn’t about to go down without a fight.

Instead, he drew his weapon and exchanged fire with the robbers.

During the shootout, the Second Amendment patriot shot and killed one of the thugs.

Peoria Police Department’s Semone Roth said:

“The investigation has determined that this was an attempted robbery setup and there was no intention to sell a vehicle.”

USA Carry noted the concealed carry holder exchanged gunfire with some of the alleged robbers.

He was able to hit one of them with at least one bullet.

Police arrived on the scene and gave first aid to the wounded felon.

However, the bandit paid the ultimate price for his thuggery and he died at the scene.

Peoria Police Department’s Semone Roth said:

“The Peoria Police Department would like to remind the public to remain vigilant during Marketplace type transactions.

“Use good judgment when it comes to selecting meetup locations that are highly visible and preferably under video surveillance.

“The parking lot and lobby of the police department are also available to conduct such transactions.”

Thankfully, the concealed carry holder and his companion were not harmed during the incident.
