University officials say robbery suspects do not attend schools

STILLWATER, Okla. — Oklahoma State Board of Investigation got it wrong when it claimed that three Craigslist robbers are students, university officials said.

Last week, Logan County District Attorney Tom Lee filed felony robbery by force with imitation of firearm and conspiracy to commit a felony charges against Gabriel Davyion Barr, 23, of Oklahoma City, Rotesha Deshay Jackson, 19, of Spencer, and Sylvia Keontay Lee, 22, of Ardmore, in Logan County District Court.

An OSBI report stated Lee and Jackson are students at Oklahoma State and Barr is a student at Langston.

According to Head of Communications Gary Shutt at OSU, none of the suspects are current students at the school.

Shutt said Jackson had been a student at one time and Lee has never been a student at OSU.

Media Specialist Jeff Packham at Langston said Lee and Jackson had previously taken summer courses at Langston but were not current students. He said Barr was enrolled for the fall semester but would not be allowed back after being charged.

The three are accused of luring a family to rural Logan County with a Craigslist advertisement for a car and then robbing them at gunpoint.
