A 24-year-old Lebanon man was charged with robbery in Camden County after authorities say he pointed a shotgun at a taxi driver on Tuesday morning.
Officials say Camden County deputies were dispatched to an undisclosed apartment address in the county about a domestic violence situation. Authorities tried to separate a couple for the evening to defuse the situation. However Seth Mason called a cab company to pick up the woman and bring her back to the apartment.
When the cab driver dropped the woman off at the apartment, the driver said that Mason walked around the building with a rifle or a shotgun, cocked it, and told him to leave.
The taxi driver left and contacted the Sheriff’s Office.
When Sheriff’s deputies arrived, they said Mason ignored their commands.
Deputies finally took Mason into custody and found a loaded black 12-gauge H&R pump action shotgun with a round in the chamber in the kitchen of the apartment.
They also found a loaded handgun on the floor in addition to ammo on a side table.
Mason has been charged with First Degree Robbery, a Class A felony, and he is being held in the Camden County Jail with bond set at $10,000 surety.
