AKRON, Ohio - An Atwater couple got quite a surprise when they responded to a craigslist ad for a car.
When the couple arrived to the home in the 900 block of W. Exchange St., they were greeted by three men in the driveway. But as they were walking back toward the garage to see the car advertised in the craigslist ad, the men pulled guns on them.
The now-masked robbers took $450 cash and then took off through back yards, according to detectives.
Police were called by the couple who ran to a nearby gas station.
Authorities continue to investigate and track down the trio.
