Detectives are searching for one half of an identical twin duo accused of responding to Craigslist ads and robbing the victims of the advertised goods.

Metro police have charged Korey Fencl, 18, who is currently locked up in Rutherford County, with six counts of aggravated robbery and one count of facilitating aggravated robbery.

Kyle Fencl, who is also named in three warrants charging him with aggravated robbery, is still on the loose.

Korey Fencl is expected to be booked in Nashville upon his release from Rutherford County.

The Fencl brothers are accused of meeting people in public places and robbing them after offering to either buy or sell items on Craigslist.

In an Aug. 18 case, Korey Fencl allegedly robbed a 22-year-old man in the parking lot of a Harding Place fast food restaurant after arranging to buy an iPhone.

In another case on Sept. 10, the twins allegedly robbed two people in a parking lot at Interstate 65 and Old Hickory Boulevard after meeting them to buy an iPhone.

The brothers are accused of other similar robberies on Bell Road, in Goodlettsville and in the driveway of north Nashville home, usually involving Apple products such as an iPhone, laptop or iPad.

Police urge anyone seeing Kyle Fencl or knowing his whereabouts to contact South Precinct Investigations at 862-7763 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

I used to swear by Craigslist as the local version of eBay without the auction or shipping aspect. Having been stood up by people who are selling or interested in buying numerous times, I am more reluctant than ever to use Craigslist. Now people are getting robbed or murdered using it!!

What is wrong with people? Why do we have to be so careful and not trust one another to be honest and do the right thing? I keep believing in my fellow man and giving him the benefit of the doubt, but I'm afraid I or one of my family members will lose their life because of their trustworthiness.

It is a shame we cannot trust anyone nowadays. I bought some tickets through Cragslist and first searched out any info I could find on the guy before meeting with him. I had his address and knew a club he belonged in which gave me some confidence he was legitimate and then arranged to meet him by the front door of a large store in the mall where I knew there'd be a flow of people.

Sirknight, you have a valid question. My take on it is that we have removed all accountability and sense of right and wrong from schools, daily and family life. Children are not "guided"; they are set out to fend for themselves at an early age. They are turned over to 'baby sitters" at day care, preK or 1-12 grades and the parents DON"T care. And who knows the values of the "sitters".

So in my day, a little God went a long way. Today, we are seeing the presence of NoGod except the me-god in these selfish, hateful, mean spirited, entitlement people.
