The Clay County Sheriff’s Office in Florida announced the arrest of a man who allegedly used the alias Larry on the gay dating and hookup app Grindr to target gay men for assault and armed robbery. A spokesperson for the sheriff specifically thanked the local community for providing critical and timely information to investigators. Adam Tyler Ayers, Jr., 18, was taken into custody without incident on Friday for three separate incidents in Clay County. Ayers allegedly created different profiles all using the name Larry, which investigators say he used to identify and lure gay men to a secluded location. “Once the victims arrived, the suspects brandished a firearm and demanded cash from the victims,” Clay County Sheriff’s posted to social media. “In two of the incidents, the suspects forced the victims to drive to an ATM and withdraw cash from their accounts and transfer money to a Cash App account. These incidents all occurred during the late night/early morning hours.”
