Man handcuffed after taking law into own hands

Posted

A Spring Lake man is learning the hard way not to take the law into his own hands.

Deputies charged Chad Anthony Robertson, 33, with multiple felonies after he allegedly decided the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office wasn’t working fast enough to get justice.

Roberts was the victim of a theft currently under investigation, according to the sheriff’s office. When an arrest was made, deputies say Roberts threatened the suspected thief’s family. The two men knew each other.

Roberts is accused of going to the suspect’s home on Barbeque Road in Sanford on Jan. 6 and threatening the man’s wife and daughter. During the confrontation, Roberts reportedly took a gun he previously sold to the suspect.

He now faces one felony count of robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.

He remains in the Harnett County Detention Center under a $150,000 secured bond.
