JONESBORO, Ark. — When his friends couldn’t find their cocaine, suspicions set in and they accused the man of taking it – with intentions of him making it right.

The man told police on Saturday two suspects, 23 and 27-year-old white males, had been staying with him at his residence at the 600-block of Gladiolus Drive. He said they had demanded payment for their cocaine and said they would kill him if he didn’t make it right. He said he feared for his life due to guns being in the room and one of the suspects having a pistol.

According to a police report, the victim gave the suspects $150 out of his wallet hoping to calm them down and get them to leave him alone. One of the suspects said that amount wasn’t enough and they drove to the bank to withdraw $200 more.

Later that day the victim said both suspects started beating on his door saying he owed more money so he gave them his debit card hoping they would leave. The victim said one of the suspects knew his pin number and $250 was taken from his account before he cancelled the card.

Police have the names of the men and are investigating the incident.
