JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police are investigating after two suspects reportedly threatened and took money from a man they believe stole drugs from them.

According to the incident report, a man contacted police Saturday to report the robbery.

He said his two roommates confronted him and accused him of stealing their cocaine.

One of the suspects said he would kill the man if he did not “make it right,” according to the report.

The victim said he feared for his life because a shotgun and a rifle were in the room and he knew one of the men had a pistol also.

The victim gave the men $150 out of his wallet, hoping that would make them leave.

The men said that wasn’t enough, so the victim drove to his bank and withdrew $200 more for them.

A little while later, the suspects returned and said that still wasn’t enough money.

The victim was afraid so he gave the men his debit card so they would leave.

The suspects went to the man’s bank and withdrew $250. The victim then canceled his debit card.

Nobody has been arrested yet in this case.
