Richard Roe


Prosecutor says eyewitness, cell phone may provide answers in fatal Pleasantville shooting by corrections officer:

This past Thursday 20-year-old Richard Roe was shot and killed in Pleasantville, New Jersey during an alleged Craigslist robbery that went bad. The thing is that the crime is being investigated as Roe being the robber.

25-year-old Sean Czerwinski was accompanying a family member who was selling a pair of headphones for $500. Supposedly two men attempted robbing the pair at gunpoint. However, Czerwinski is an Atlantic County Corrections Officer and was armed at the time. Reports say that Czerwinski produced his sidearm and fired at Roe who eventually died from his wounds.

The phone number that called Czerwinski’s family member was said to have been used in other robberies in the area.

I grew up in the area so I can tell you that the name Pleasantville is an oxymoron so this does not surprise me.

Hopefully, this will send a message to other would-be craigslist robbers in the area that you never know who you’re messing with when you try to rob someone.
