Man Who Used 'LetGo' App in Robbery Sentenced to Prison

SNOW HILL, Md.- An 18-year-old man who used the mobile marketplace app "LetGo" to lure and then rob two people in Worcester County has been sentenced to eight years behind bars. 

Jeremy Flatley, of Newark, Md., was convicted in July of robbery with a dangerous weapon and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon in the Worcester County Circuit Court. On Oct. 4, he was sentenced by Judge Beau H. Oglesby to serve 20 years in the Division of Correction, with all but eight suspended. Flatley will be on four years of supervised probation upon his release.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Basket Switch Road in Newark, Md., on Feb. 20. Court documents show Flatley and a co-defendant used the "LetGo" app to lure two men to that location under the pretense of selling them a four-wheeler. Once the men arrived, Flatley and his co-defendant pulled out guns and demanded money. One victim threw his wallet toward Flatley before fleeing as shots were fired.

The victims contacted police and provided a description of one of the suspects who police were able to identify as Flatley. During the course of the investigation, police were able to obtain messages sent between Flatley and his co-defendant setting up the robbery.
