RENO — Secret Witness is offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspects wanted in connection with the armed robbery of a person who responded to a Craigslist ad to buy a computer.

At about 1 p.m. Tuesday, the victim responded to an ad for a laptop computer for sale on Craigslist. The suspects told the victim to meet them in a parking lot in the area of 4720 N. Virginia St. to complete the transaction. When the victim arrived the two suspects exited a possible 2000 model black Honda Civic with no license plates and no spoiler and held the victim at knife point. The suspects fled after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash.

Anyone having information relating to this crime, the suspect vehicle or the suspects should contact the Reno Police Department at 334-2115, or Secret Witness at 322-4900, or text the tip to 847411 (TIP 411) keyword “SW.”
