Ohio Woman Lures A Man Via Facebook To Rob Him

An Ohio woman lured a man met on Facebook on a fake date in order to set him up for a robbery

A Lima, Ohio woman has pled guilty to luring a man via Facebook on a fake date in order to set him up for a robbery.

Tara Bell, 24 met the victim Josh L. Tyree, 28, via the social networking site, according to the Norwalk Reflector.

The woman set up the pretend date back in March 27 with the intent of having Tyree meet up instead with her armed friend, Bo Guedea, 28.

Reportedly, when Tyree arrived at his destination spot, he was met by Guedea, who then shot the victim once in the leg. There was also a third person who was added to the mix, Latasha Ward, 21, who was appointed the designated lookout.

Bell pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of aggravated robbery with a gun specification during a hearing in the Allen County Common Pleas Court. A charge of complicity to felonious assault with a firearm specification was dismissed as part of a deal with prosecutors.

As part of the plea negotiations, prosecutors agreed to seek a six-year prison term in the case when Bell is sentenced next month. If the judge agrees to the recommendation, Bell could be looking at an earlier release of perhaps three and a half years.

Last June, Guedea pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated robbery with a gun specification and is behind bars for nine-years.

Ward is scheduled to face a judge on August 25.
