MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A 17-year-old Montgomery boy has been arrested and charged in connection with multiple robberies that took place during meetings the victims believed were about property being sold online, according to the Montgomery Police Department.

Isaiah Byers is charged with four counts of first-degree robbery and one count of second-degree assault, which came as the result of a non-life-threatening gunshot wound suffered by one victim. 

Police say the robberies were committed against people on Oct. 26, Nov. 16, and Nov. 22, all in the area of Moorcroft Drive. The Nov. 16 incident resulted in a man being shot.

MPD's investigation found that the victims had set up plans to meet an individual who was offering property for sale online. After meeting the suspect, each victim was robbed.

Byers was taken into custody Tuesday related to one of the robbery cases. He was then linked to two other robberies after victims in each case identified him. 

A mugshot was not immediately available.

MPD reminds citizens to use the public internet exchange purchase locations when arranging to meet individuals in person to complete purchases arranged online. The locations are in front of MPD, 320 N. Ripley St., and outside DPS SouthCentral, 2905 E. South Blvd.
