SALISBURY — Two Salisbury residents were arrested Wednesday after police say two men held a gun to a man’s head and robbed him inside a Bendix Drive apartment.
According to Salisbury Police, Jessica Elaine Snider and Brian Keith White were arrested shortly after the robbery was reported.
Authorities said White and another man walked up to 42-year-old Theodore Luther as he was leaving 322 Bendix Drive, Apartment 212, at about 1:40 a.m.
One man pointed a handgun at Luther’s head and ordered him back inside the apartment, the report said. As he held him at gunpoint, the other man searched the apartment. The two fled after taking $230.
Police said the two men jumped into a vehicle, which was initially described to officers as possibly a Toyota Tercel with a white fender.
Luther told police at the scene that he recognized the female driver and knew her first name.
The vehicle, later identified as a Ford Escort with a white door panel, was found at 1002 Celebration Drive.
White, 40, and Snider, 33, were both arrested at the home at about 2:30 a.m. Authorities are still searching for the third suspect.
Police declined to disclose if the handgun used in the robbery was found at the Celebration Drive residence, citing the pending investigation.
White and Snider were both charged with felony kidnapping and felony robbery with firearms or other dangerous weapons.
Snider, who lives at the 1002 Celebration Drive address, was given a $75,000 bond.
White, 618 E. Cemetery St., was given a $150,000 bond. They were both in jail Wednesday morning.
Authorities ask anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of this man to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
