Jamal Davis, 18, Spokane Valley Jamal Davis, 18, Spokane Valley

POST FALLS, Idaho. - A man who originally said he was robbed after going to look at a used car for sale was held up for $3,000 dollars when the man he met with pulled a gun on him.

Wednesday night, shortly before 8, the Post Falls police were called to the parking lot of Cabelas on the report of a robbery.

Police say the man who called them said he was robbed at gunpoint by a man named Jamal. He said he had gone to the parking lot with $3,000 in cash in hopes of buying a Jeep from Jamal.

The man says there was a white Jeep in the parking lot and when he got in to take a test drive, he says Jamal pointed a pistol at his chest and demanded all of the money.

He told police he was so scared that he handed over all the money and ran away. Police later discovered that the man had taken the $3,000 dollars to buy a large amount of marijuana from Jamal, but was instead robbed.

Police located Jamal and identified him as Jamal Davis, 18, of Spokane Valley.

Davis was arrested and charged with robbery. During an interview with Davis, he said he used the $3,000 to pay off a drug debt of his own. The pistol he used turned out to be a BB gun.

Davis did admit he brought the BB gun with the intent to use it to rob the victim.
