GREENVILLE, PITT COUNTY -

Popular online social site Facebook was the meeting place for two people who coordinated a private shoe sale in Greenville but officials say things took a turn for the worst when the in-person meeting ended in an armed robbery.

Police tell us the two unidentified men met at about 10:20 p.m. Wednesday at the Carmike Cinemas located on East Fire Tower Road in Greenville, to conduct a private shoe sale.

The victim told police the suspect pulled out a handgun during the sale then stole the shoes. The victim was able to get the suspect's license plate number. Police say they were quickly able to track down the suspect at his home on Holden Drive where he was arrested.        

There were no injuries reported. Police could not verify what type or types of shoes were being sold.  

We were working to get the suspect's identity confirmed.
