CRIME

A man charged with stealing a firearm from a local gun store was indicted by a Bell County grand jury Wednesday.

Quahary Cavon Bobbitt, 22, of Killeen, was charged with the theft of a firearm May 24.

Officers received a report at 1:24 p.m. that a man stole a gun from Marksmen Firearms on South W.S. Young Drive in Killeen. A store employee told police a man came into the store, took a .357 magnum handgun from a display, put it under his shirt, and left the shop without paying for it, according to an arrest affidavit. The gun was valued at $2,299.

Later that day, Bobbitt was arrested on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm. Nine minutes after the Marksmen employee said the gun was stolen, police were sent to a scene in connection with an armed man, police said.

Bobbitt, still wearing the same black pants, white undershirt and green baseball cap that he was seen wearing in security footage at Marksmen Firearms, was taken into custody by police, according to the affidavit. The gun matched the same description of the firearm taken from Marksmen earlier that day, police said.
