BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Investigators in Bladen County say a man who wanted to buy a gun instead tried to use it to steal it.
The Sheriff’s Office says Rodney Autry Jr., 22, of Elizabethtown, told the victim he was interested in buying his handgun. They agreed to meet to see if Autry liked it enough to buy it.
After Autry shot the handgun a couple of times in a field Tuesday, investigators say he pointed the gun at the victim and told him to leave. A third person with them saw the whole thing.
Deputies arrested Autry yesterday. He is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and second degree kidnapping. Autry is in the Bladen County Jail under a $62,500 secured bond.
Department of Corrections records show Autry received probation for a 2009 larceny conviction.
