BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - An Ohio teen has been charged in Upshur County after officers said he pointed a gun at a minor and stole two guns, including an AK-47.

Officers received a call on Thursday, April 21 about stolen firearms, according to a criminal complaint.

The caller said a family friend went to the home to see a minor that lived there, officers said.

The report says the family friend came to the home with Tavin Hill, 18, of Stockport, Ohio, to see two guns, a 9mm and an AK-47.

When they arrived at the home, court documents say Hill pulled a pistol out and pointed it at the minor’s face and told him to go get the guns. He brought the guns out from inside the home to Hill and the family friend who got in the car and left, stealing the firearms.

Officers reported that the minor was aware they were coming but was not comfortable showing them the guns.

Messages between Hill, the minor, and the family friend showed that there were discussions about them coming to the home.

Hill has been charged with grand larceny and first-degree robbery. He is being held at North Central Regional Jail without bond.
