DOVER, Del. - Police say they arrested a Dover man after he allegedly stole a cell phone and tried to sell it back to the owner.

Dover Police say they were contacted by a 17-year-old who said he had been robbed at gunpoint. According to the report, the teen met the suspect on-line, and they met up at the Hamlet Shopping Center, where the teen got into a car with the suspect. Once inside, Police say the suspect pulled out a gun, and took the victim's cell phone, ID, and a small quantity of suspected marijuana.

A short time later, a family member of the victim reportedly received a text saying the suspect would sell the cell phone back. Police then set up surveillance at the agreed location, where they then arrested the suspect, 22-year-old Steven Walls, and recovered the cell phone, and ID. Police say they did not find a weapon.

Walls was charged with 1st degree robbery, and is being held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $50,000 bond.
