State police have arrested four southwestern Pennsylvania men and are still looking for another on charge they robbed people who answered Craigslist notices advertising electronics for sale.

State police near Uniontown say at least three men were victimized by the suspects who are all in their late teens or early 20s.

Police say one man was robbed of $250 and two cell phones when he answered an ad about an iPad for sale on Aug. 1.

And the third victim says he was met by two gun-toting men who fired shots when he sped away after arriving Aug. 9 to buy a laptop computer.
