MIRAMAR, Fla., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested an armed robbery suspect after he tried to sell iPhones and iPads to his alleged victim two days later.

Miramar police said Hank Yan was robbed Monday near an apartment complex on the 2200 block of Sherman Circle South by a gunman who took two iPhones and $500 cash, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

Police said Yan received a phone call two days later from a man whose voice he recognized as the robber. Yan said the man offered to sell him an iPad and three iPhones and arranged to meet him at the apartment complex near where the robber occurred.

The accused robber, Zachary Swindle, 19, and alleged accomplice Devonte Suckie, 18, were arrested when they showed up for the arranged meeting Wednesday.

Swindle was booked on an armed robbery charge and Suckie was charged with carrying a concealed firearm. Suckie also is facing an unrelated charge of burglary of an occupied dwelling and grand theft.
