A 19-year-old Oakland man was arrested by Concord Police in Benicia after an armed robbery on Clayton Road.

At about 7:15pm on Monday night, Officers responded to the Lucky parking lot at 5190 Clayton Road for a reported armed robbery. The suspect had listed an iPhone-5 for sale on craigslist and arranged to meet an interested buyer in the Lucky parking lot.  When the buyer showed the money to complete the transaction, the suspect brandished a revolver at the victim, took the money and fled in a green 1992 Lexus, according to the Concord Police.

A Concord Police Officer saw the suspect’s vehicle on NB I-680, and followed the suspect until adequate units were in place to stop the vehicle on I-780 in Benicia.

The Officers recovered the cash and the gun used in the crime.  The suspect was arrested for Robbery.

Concord Police have identified the suspect as 19-year-old Oakland resident Christoph Ebert-Stallworth.

More Oaklan trash!

Probably on his way to Vallejo to see his baby mama.

I have just one word of advice to all of those “perps” out there, if the Concord Police Department is after you, JUST GIVE UP AND TURN YOURSELF IN, BECAUSE THEY WILL GET YOU.

I’m amazed at the people who still do business through Craigslist. Isn’t that an industrial strength magnet for scams? You’d think with all the crap that has gone down – even murders – through CL, people would be creeped out by the idea of meeting anyone in a dark parking lot that they arranged this way.

An AB 109er, perchance?

Thank you CPD!

Great job CPD!

Rob January 15, 2013 at 5:53 AM

Using a revolver? Nice to see someone going old-school.

Horse'n Around January 15, 2013 at 6:02 AM

Great job. Thank you to the officer who kept following him.

Anon777 January 15, 2013 at 6:20 AM

Glad they caught him. However, I’m sorry, but with all the recent cell phone robberies of pedestrians and/or people asking to borrow and then steal a phone, these BUYERS have to KNOW that they are coming to look at a stolen phone!

chubby January 15, 2013 at 6:26 AM

That’s 2 for the CPD! Let’s make this a streak.

Anon1 January 15, 2013 at 6:27 AM

Awesome job Concord PD!!!! Keep takin the trash off the street!! Thank you for your service!!!!

@ R January 15, 2013 at 6:33 AM

Oh how original. Trash is everywhere, not just Oakland. Get over your obsessions to blame a geographic location for the actions of people. Just like the argument that guns don’t kill people, people kill people! Same applies here.

Amon January 15, 2013 at 6:42 AM

It is great to see Concord PD getting some good news all I ever see is the suspects got away. It is nice to see them getting the bad guys for a change score 2 for CPD your are making me feel more positive about our city keep up the good work.

Forever Grateful January 15, 2013 at 7:06 AM

Way To Go Concord Police!
Thank YOU!

Just heard Claycord mention on KYVU about this story. GO CLAYCORD!!

Girl w/ Dogs January 15, 2013 at 7:14 AM

You can get a nice look at Christoph on Myspace.

jj January 15, 2013 at 7:18 AM

GOOD JOB CPD get the trash out of concord thanks

Mr John January 15, 2013 at 7:22 AM

Congrats. But the buyer needs to be called out a bit. If you’re meeting in a parking lot to buy a used phone, you know you’re buying stolen goods. Or, at the least, you should know it is a reasonable likelihood. Don’t encourage crime by buying stolen goods.

ThugOut January 15, 2013 at 7:42 AM

Thank you CPD for catching this thug. Seems to be a few thugs from Oakland lately being arrested for crimes in our town. Wish they’d stay in their own neighborhoods and muck up their own town.

Memo to Oakland Crooks: Keep your own self out of Concord.

anon January 15, 2013 at 8:02 AM

Actually the first dumb guy probably got on the wrong freeway entrance. He realy wanted to go home to Oakland. The other dumb guy is the one selling the phone to a stranger in a parking lot.

dilligafman January 15, 2013 at 8:32 AM

again i have to say– Oaktown huh?, go figure!

Jeff January 15, 2013 at 8:47 AM

Is it wrong to wish he’d pointed the gun at the officers?


And you want to ban firearms from a guy like me?

How will I protect myself against a guy like this, who DOES NOT follow the laws?

GoGo Gomez January 15, 2013 at 8:51 AM

Great work CPD!
See people CPD is doing a damn good job!

Cee Cee January 15, 2013 at 9:04 AM

@ sam
You said it all , our Concord Police Officers are the BEST ! ! !

Thank you , CPD !

Mike January 15, 2013 at 9:04 AM

I hate to call a 19-year old “trash”… hope he gets his life together soon after this. He’s headed down a bad road.

Anonamomma January 15, 2013 at 9:13 AM

Stupid people, doing stupid things

say whaaaaaat? January 15, 2013 at 9:42 AM

He mama be proud.

Mutts January 15, 2013 at 9:45 AM

Thank you CPD. Now, ONLY if we can get a judge to keep this creep in jail. Oh wait, the liberals won’t allow that. Keep voting for democrats, they love to protect criminals.

Jmouse January 15, 2013 at 10:08 AM

Heard the whole thing on my police scanner. Great job CPD.

Josh January 15, 2013 at 10:39 AM

“the Officers recovered the cash and the gun used in the crime. The suspect was arrested for Robbery”

– so who got the iPhone 5?

Gaz January 15, 2013 at 10:50 AM

Income: $250,000 and Higher

The Biz January 15, 2013 at 11:32 AM

Just execute the filth.

Amy January 15, 2013 at 11:36 AM

Great job Concord Police! That’s 2 for 2 this week!

@Mr. John #20 January 15, 2013 at 11:57 AM

Not necessarily true. Plenty of craigslist sellers prefer to meet in public places, rather than have random starngers come to their home. And legitimate sales of iPhones are not all that rare. So it’s really not fair to say that the buyer should have assumed the seller was a crook.

Personally, i wouldn’t buy something from somebody who didn’t want me to know where they live and i wouldn’t expect somebody to buy something from me under those circumstances. So I always sell from my home. But anytime I meet a stranger at my house for a sale, I am ALWAYS armed.

“Great job. Thank you to the officer who kept following him.”

Please…its his job & he gets paid for it..it is what he is supposed to do…..

Capt. Kook January 15, 2013 at 12:40 PM

I would be afraid to sell anything online anymore.
I would have the buyer meet in the Police Parking lot or lobby…… The bad guys won’t show up.

Phoenyx January 15, 2013 at 12:47 PM

Glad this one didn’t end up in my living room, and that they caught him! Funny that the chase ended up in the town where I work.

Great Job by CPD and associates!!

Concord Guy January 15, 2013 at 1:13 PM

“I didn’t do nothing!”

Mary January 15, 2013 at 2:34 PM

Hmmm another of Obama’s Sons.

Wasn’t there recently a robbery of a cell phone on or near Clayton Road but the dude was never caught?

ConstantReader January 15, 2013 at 2:59 PM

Yeah for our CPD!!! Thanks!

@Mary January 15, 2013 at 4:21 PM

What was that supposed to mean, another of Obama’s Sons?

Why don’t you hop, skip and jump over to the Talk About Politics area where you can share your “pissed-at-the-president” garbage with others of your tribe?

Really, your comment is not only racist, but brainless.

anon January 15, 2013 at 5:27 PM

At least the victim was smart enough to get the suspects license plate to give to CPD.

Horse'n Around January 15, 2013 at 5:31 PM

@ anon 39 shut up. How come I can’t say what a great job he did, but others on here can say the same thing? You are a dumb @$$

Kirk January 15, 2013 at 6:35 PM

Come on Horse’n around, why the long face?

Sorry couldn’t help it.

great idea January 15, 2013 at 9:44 PM

…meeting a craigslist contact at the police station! Forget shopping mall parking lots–they’re full of cars, not people who can help you if there is trouble.

Besides, if the person you’re meeting knows very very well where the police station is, there may be a bad reason!

Anonymous January 16, 2013 at 7:42 AM

@Gaz 35
Too funny! He claims he makes $250,000. Maybe you should report him to the IRS and collect the finder’s fee. The IRS doesn’t mess around (ask Al Capone).

@39 January 16, 2013 at 4:45 PM

I guess you don’t tip your servers either? I still thank plenty of people I pay to provide services, assuming they do a decent job.
