BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- A Benton Harbor teen is going to prison for robbing a man who responded to a Craigslist ad.

Simon Starks, 18, was sentenced to 11-to 20-years behind bars after a jury found him guilty back in February.

It all stems from an incident last November when Daniel Beshires went to inspect a parked car he'd seen on Craigslist.

Beshires was driving away when Starks approached him, pretending to be the owner, according to our reporting partners at the Herald Palladium.

Starks pulled a gun on the man and took his wallet, while the two were looking under the hood.
