SALISBURY — Two people are in jail under $20,000 bonds each, charged with robbery with a firearm and kidnapping.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Marco Antonio Pina-Reza, 20, and Katlin Anne Mazzocchi, 17, were charged early this morning and arrested in Kannapolis.
Officers were called to a home on Garmon Road Sunday morning by 16-year-old Cody Killian who said Pina-Reza and Mazzocchi had just come to his home, pulled a gun on him and tied him up to a chair using Duct tape.
Killian told authorities the two left with a suitcase and gym bag filled with items from the home, including a laptop computer, a 12-gauge shotgun, a rifle, flashlights, a video recorder, jewelry, passports and birth certificates.
Killian’s family was at church at the time of the invasion, but were there when officers arrived. Killian identified Pina-Reza and Mazzocchi, who both live at 519 Chrysler Street in Kannapolis, as the suspects, authorities said, but said he was not friends with them.
Authorities are attempting to locate the stolen property.
