A second man has been charged with firearms-related crimes involving the same Huntington man who police say was threatened at gunpoint and robbed of a handgun Sunday.
Terry Joe Stotts, 41, of Huntington, was arrested at 10:48 a.m. Wednesday at 405 E. Jefferson St. in Huntington, on charges of coercion and unlawful use of a weapon, two Class C felonies; and menacing, a Class A misdemeanor.
Stotts was arraigned on the charges Thursday. Judge Matt Shirtcliff set bail at $50,000 with release possible upon posting 10%, or $5,000. Robert Raschio, a Canyon City attorney, was appointed to represent Stotts.
Stotts is accused of compelling Roman Rhodes to leave his home by threatening him with a shotgun, thereby placing Rhodes in fear of “imminent serious physical injury.”
Justin Bridwell, 31, was arraigned Tuesday for allegedly robbing Rhodes at gunpoint of a handgun belonging to Christina Hoberg of Huntington. Judge Thomas B. Powers also set bail for Bridwell at $50,000, with release possible upon posting 10%.
Bridwell is charged with one count of first-degree theft and one count of unlawful use of a weapon, both Class C felonies; two counts of second-degree robbery, a Class B felony; and one count of menacing.
Bridwell is represented by Baker City attorney Robert Whitnah.
