CCSO: Botched internet sale of empty Sony PlayStation box leads to Alma Myra Park confrontation
A reminder from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office: If you choose to purchase items second-hand via the internet, take caution while doing so.
The reminder came after an incident on Sunday afternoon that ended with Keenan O'Shea Lee, 18, of Milwaukie, being taken into custody near Alma Myra Park, allegedly carrying an empty PlayStation box, a concealed loaded pistol and a ski mask.
Demarcus Preston, 46, of Portland, told deputies he had made arrangements online and over the phone to purchase a Sony PlayStation from the suspect. They agreed to meet at the park at 7510 S.E. Thiessen Road.
When Preston met the suspect, he said he found the PlayStation box empty and the suspect reportedly pointed a gun at him. Preston told authorities that he was able to disarm the suspect.
Lee reportedly retrieved his gun from the ground before fleeing the scene.
Deputies then investigated to determine the identity and location of the suspect. Lee was arrested on charges of first-degree robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon and use of a weapon. He is being held in Clackamas County Jail on $280,000 bail.
