    PORT ST. LUCIE — A man who thought he had arranged a meeting to sell an AK-47 instead had firearms pulled on him and the assault rifle stolen.

    According to a Port St. Lucie Police Department report released Friday, the man went to a house in the 6800 block of Northwest Abadan Avenue in Port St. Lucie about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and met with a man later identified as Derrick Flannigan of Port St. Lucie, who invited the gun owner into the house to make the $550 sale.

    “Once inside, (the victim) felt that something wasn’t right as there was no power in the house and the house appeared to be vacant,” the report states.

    At that point, according to the report, three men with dark bandannas over their faces and “displaying firearms” entered the room and demanded the rifle.

    The victim complied and was “rushed out of the house.”

    Based on information from the victim and phone records, police tracked down and detained Flannigan, who reportedly admitted he had planned the robbery. Flannigan reportedly told police a man named “Menace” had the rifle at his home two lots away from the site of the robbery.

    Authorities arrested Kevern “Menace” Hagley, 19, at his home in the 6800 block of Northwest Abadan Avenue on a charge of robbery with a deadly weapon. He was in the St. Lucie County Jail on Friday in lieu of $150,000 bail.

    Hagley reportedly told police he had arranged the “lick” (robbery) with Flannigan and had taken the rifle afterward, but he said he passed the gun to another friend for safe-keeping.

    Flannigan was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail on Thursday on a charge of robbery with a deadly weapon and was still being held Friday without bond.

    This is why you meet in a public place for transactions.

    Or, conversely, don't buy guns you intend to sell. :o

    Or, make sure you have a backup weapon during transactions.

    Fuck all that.

    I go armed, usually with another armed friend, and meet somewhere fairly populated. I also wondered why you didn't hear more of this happening; It's been a fear of mine.
