A woman matched with a man who went by the name “Junior” on the dating app ‘Tagged’ and the two decided to meet at the Dover Crossing Sonic. As she arrived, ‘Junior’, who was later identified as 25-year-old Christopher Scales, asked her to get out of the car and give him a hug. As she did he opened her back door, grabbed a clear purse and white backpack, and fled on foot down the path behind the Sonic. Inside the purse and backpack was a laptop, a military ID, $800 in cash, two food stamp cards, a CashApp card, and a Venmo card. She gave chase after him until he turned and pulled a gun and racked the slide, at which point she retreated. He was positively identified in a photo lineup and taken into custody the following day.
Officers say they have identified Dyandria “Shonta Black” Sealey as the person who used the OfferUp app to scam Lelia Burke on the sale of a Playstation before Christmas. They say Sealey accepted $499 via CashApp but never showed up to deliver the Playstion, and never had any intention of doing so. After receiving account data back from both OfferUp and Cashapp, it was determined both accounts belonged to her, with her confirmed phone number and email address, and personal identifying information for the banking portions.
23-year-old Nacobie O’Neal Vaughns now faces felony auto burglary and felony fraud charges after police say a victim reported her bank card was stolen from her vehicle on Raven Road earlier this month and shortly after, someone attempted to remove $3,820.00 from her bank card to their CashApp account. Subpoenas to CashApp revealed the account belonged to Nacobie Vaughns, and police swore out the warrants.
Vaughns posted on social media that he was arrested for something he didn’t do. Vaughns has no prior record and had a valid handgun carry permit – until a Judge ordered it to be surrendered as a result of this arrest. He is free on a $20,000 bond.
