NAPLES — One man called for help only to be robbed at gun point.
The victim called his friend, Robert Matthew Garland, 20, for a ride on Wednesday after his car overheated, according to a Collier County Sheriff's Office report.
Garland, of the 1000 block of Albony Court in Golden Gate Estates, showed up in a red Ford car. He was in the passenger seat but moved to the back, making room for the victim up front.
Alexander Richard Vega, 18, of the 5400 block of 30th Avenue S.W., was also in the back seat.
Once the car took off, the report continued, Vega pointed a black and silver semi-automatic gun at the victims head and told him to empty his pockets.
Garland took the victim's wallet, $350 in cash, credit cards and identification.
But Garland wasn't finished. He also relieved the victim of his shoes – a pair of Lacoste valued at nearly $400.
The victim was then kicked out of the car.
Collier deputies arrested Garland at a nightclub and Vega as he tried to sneak away from his house. Vega was on probation for trafficking in stolen property.

Gun Free Zones are totally effective, and 100% safe ... (wait for it) ... (wait for it) ... until a bad guy with a gun shows up! Then suddenly, you have an uncontested Kill Zone of defensless sheep, patiently awaiting their turn for the slaughter.
Two old saws come to mind - "birds of a feather flock together" and "no honor among thieves." Based on who he called for help, I have to wonder what kind of upstanding citizen the "victim" was.

Just for fun, I looked up the address on Google Maps to check out the street view. Ironically, or perhaps tellingly, the closest view I could get was on the parallel street; Jaybird Way.
Instead of buying $400 shoes, maybe he should get a reliable car.
Brings to mind the old saying
"You can sleeps in yur car, but ya can'ts dirve yur house!
Shoes always bees beetern a a good ca, then ca be beetern a good house.
He just ain't gots his Gummint Assistance together yet! Fur Sh!izzle !
Oh wow...yeah rob your friend and leave him their...so he can ID you later. LOL yay for dumb criminals
Sounds like a drug dealer got his shoes stolen. They were probably clients of his.
