Failed Drug Buy Leads To Robbery Arrest

A 21-year-old man was arrested Monday on charges he robbed another man during a failed drug buy in early June.

Alex Guerra, 2125 Scrub Oak Circle, East Naples, was charged with armed robbery with a firearm.

Arrest reports say the man told deputies he went to the Summer Lakes apartment complex in North Naples around 6 p.m. on June 4 to buy marijuana.

Guerra pointed a small semiautomatic pistol at the man’s head and demanded all of his money and personal belongings, reports said. The man gave Guerra his car keys, cell phone and $800 cash, reports said.

Guerra ran from the apartment complex, reports said. Deputies located Guerra on Monday and arrested him, reports said.
