According to reports, a Washington D.C. Firefighter is accused of pulling out a gun and stealing a pair of designer Louboutin sneakers from a victim.
The Montgomery County Police Department said claim that the victim made arrangements with the suspect through an online marketplace called “OfferUp” to sell a pair of Christian Louboutin Louis Orlato Holographic sneakers for $700.
24-year-old Davon Moore, a fireman in Washington DC, agreed to meet the victim on December 20, police say. Firefighters in DC can make up to $75K a year and can retire with a pension after 20 years of service.
Prosecutors claim that Devon and the victim had a disagreement over the transaction - and Devon allegedly pulled a gun, took the shoes and ran off.
Police obtained a warrant for Devon, which charged him with armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and theft between $100 and $1,500.
Davon was taken into custody on Christmas Eve and released on Wednesday, December 26 after posting a $5,000 bond.
Davon worked for their department for four years and is currently on leave awaiting the outcome of the case
