STAMFORD, Conn., -- Next time make sure to wear pants with pockets.

A Stamford teen had $150 snatched from his hand Saturday afternoon by a person he met to buy an Xbox, police said.

The teen had met the seller on Facebook and arranged to meet in the area of 120 Bridge St. The buyer was driven to the area by his mother and during the transaction he had the $150 cash in his hand because he had no pockets.

The "seller" didn't have an Xbox and quickly snatched the cash from the teen's hand and ran away. The suspect is described as a black male somewhere around 15 years old and may attend a city high school, police said.
