OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office is urging residents in the county to come to one of their offices or substations to close deals they make online for goods or other transactions.

The office announced the plan Tuesday, saying it hopes to serve as a safe place where transactions can be conducted because those out to prey on citizens won’t want to do business with law enforcement officers present.

Local officials say the locations are in response to a recent case in Georgia where authorities say a man answering a Craigslist ad from a couple who wanted to buy a car robbed, shot and killed the husband and wife when they traveled several hours to buy the vehicle.
