If you use a dating app, a Florida police unit has a cautionary tale.

Port St. Lucie investigators say a man had a harrowing experience after meeting another man using the dating app MeetMe.

They got together at a home on December 29, where the alleged victim met 26-year-old Cleveland White Jamison. But Jamison did not stay long because there were other people at the residence.

The next day Jamison returned in the early morning hours when the alleged victim explained that he expected to exchange sexual favors for marijuana. Instead Jamison pulled out a gun and demanded money, according to police.

When the alleged victim said he didn’t have any Jamison took his clothes, Michael Jordan shoes, a phone, jewelry and a watch, police said.

By pinging the stolen cellphone, police said they were able to track Jamison.

They said that they found Jamison wearing the alleged victim’s clothes and jewelry.

Police took Jamison to the St. Lucie County Jail on charges of robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, grand theft, possession of a weapon by convicted felon, and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
