TOPANGA CANYON—The Los Angeles Police Department’s Topanga Division detectives are looking for additional victims of a robbery suspect, who was arrested on February 1.
According to the LAPD Blog, detectives arrested Carter Nathan Singer, for robbing three separate victims. Authorities believe Singer met the victims through an online sales mobile application, where he pretended to be a customer. Victims thought Singer was interested in purchasing their jewelry items, but instead, he robbed each of them of their property. He also sprayed the victims in the face with pepper spray.
After reviewing the case, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office charged Singer with multiple felony counts of 211PC-Robbery.
The LAPD believes there are additional victims because of the large number of people Singer contacted online before his arrest. Singer remains in custody and is being held on $180,000 bail.
