CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A judge found probable cause to charge a man with theft after his admitted to stealing a shotgun.

According to a probable cause affidavit, a victim told a deputy that 19-year-old Logan Everett Turner stole two firearms from him and his grandfather and roughly $400 combined from their wallets at the 140-block of Craighead County Road 960 back on March 12.

The victim told the deputy he believed Turner stole the money while they slept, and Turner reportedly admitted to the victim that he stole the lock box, which contained around $60,000.

The affidavit states a relative of Turner's returned the lock box, and the deputy later learned Turner pawned a Mossberg 500g with a serial number of R427687 for $100 at Jim's Pawn Shop, 3711 E Highland Dr.

Later, the deputy asked the mother of Turner to bring him to the Craighead County Detention Center to speak with him regarding the theft.

According to the affidavit, Turner admitted to stealing the Mossberg and pawning it at the shop for $100.

However, Turner told investigators he did not steal the second gun, a .38 Special Revolver, nor did he take money from the wallets of the victim or the victim's grandfather.

Investigators arrested Turner and a judge charged him with Theft of a Firearm valued at $2,500 or less, a Class D felony that could result in a $10,000 fine or up to six years in jail.

The judge set Turner's bond at $1,500 and he's expected back in court on April 27.
