Authorities: Fayetteville teen tried to sell stolen gun to deputy

Posted September 9, 2014

 Daniel Bollar

— A 17-year-old student at Terry Sanford High School has been charged after Cumberland County deputies say he tried to sell a stolen handgun to an undercover deputy.

Daniel Bollar, of Lieber Street, was taken into custody on Monday after he tried to sell a .380 Ruger pistol to an undercover sheriff's deputy who had learned via Facebook of Bollar's plan to sell the weapon.

Investigators found the gun, which was reported stolen on June 1, between the passenger seat and console of Bollar's vehicle. They also discovered a small amount of marijuana in Bollar's pocket.

Bollar was charged with possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a handgun by a minor, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana and attempting to obtain property by false pretenses.

Bollar was in the Cumberland County jail Tuesday under a $10,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to make his first court appearance Tuesday afternoon.

    Most people take their children to school without a gun. ...and go to work ...and the store...

    One of your comparison items is currently essential to American living...used by 100 million people for hours every day to improve their lives...your other item is not...and is actually designed to end people's lives. Your "ban" comparison is not a good one.

    Correct, and if we banned and confiscated all cars it would greatly reduce auto accidents. What an insane post.

    The “Hans impersonator” said, “People are gonna do what they want to do. You cannot govern people into doing anything. In my opinion, it probably makes it worse.”

    Right. Let’s repeal all laws, since criminals are going to break them anyway. Let’s toss The Constitution, because it tells people what to do and “probably makes it worse”.

    Look, I know that I harp on the whole Golden Rule thing alot, but if people just gave one minutes thought to how the other side saw things...or spent a minute asking a question that might give them new insight... many of our world’s problems would disappear.

    I don't think he knew that stealing the gun was illegal. Gun laws don't pertain here.

    You anti-constitution people are crazy. My guns are locked up inside my house. I don't keep all of them in a safe. I keep a couple around inside my house loaded in case I need them. Being locked up in my house is all the security needed. If someone breaks into my house and steals my stuff, they are the ones breaking the law, not me. You people seems to care less about individual rights. Your compassion is for the crooks and murderers rather than the honest hard working tax payers. You make no sense to me at all.

    We don't have, nor have we ever had, strict gun laws as a nation. And outright ban combined with confiscation would, over time, drastically reduce the epidemic of gun violence in this country. That is a goal worth pursuing if you indeed value life at all.

    Oh, I agree - not under the current law. That's why we need to change it.

    What about strict gun laws? I thought that would keep guns out of criminals hands????
