A Wisconsin teenager was recently arrested for allegedly assisting her boyfriend in holding a gun to a man’s head and stealing his wallet.
18-year-old Josephine Garczynski and 27-year-old Curtis Britton were charged with armed robbery on Wednesday (March 8). The kicker: Garczynski supposedly asked her father to take pictures as police were handcuffing her so she could post the incident on Facebook.
The victim later told police that he’d met a woman on the social media site with the name Josephine King, who he had chatted with but never met. When they agreed to meet on March 5 at in intersection in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, he got into the woman’s car.
According to authorities, a man now identified as Britton, got into the back seat of the car and held a gun to the victim’s head while demanding his phone and wallet. Detectives later identified King as Garczynski and interviewed her at her father’s home. She initially said she didn’t know Britton, but later admitted the whole thing was part of an inside job. Garczynski’s mother told police the couple had been dating for about a year.
