— Authorities are trying to identify four suspects who followed a man home from a gas station on Monday and robbed him at gunpoint.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the 5800 block of Permastone Lake Road in Hope Mills where deputies found the victim, Jeffery Kindred. Kindred told authorities he was followed home from the Kangaroo store at the intersection of Camden and Rockfish roads.

Officials said Kindred was approached by a man at the gas station who asked him to cash a $100 lottery ticket. Kindred told investigators he decided not to give the suspect cash, and then he left the store and drove home.

When Kindred pulled into his driveway, he said several people rushed up to him with guns, made him get out of this vehicle and forced him to go into the house. Officials said Kindred walked to the rear of the house and turned on a light, which woke up his father.

The suspects then ran out of the house, fired several shots and fled in a vehicle.

The sheriff's office released surveillance photos of the suspects in the case. Anyone with information about the robbery should call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-483-8477.

    I don't think he took the ticket and then refused to give them the money. I think he told them no. As far as why they asked him to do it, it could have been a fake ticket, no ID, anything. They were at a convenience store so if everything was legit, the store would have cashed it.

    Um. Why did those guys need someone else to cash the ticket? Then why did the guy chose to keep the money? I get why the guys followed the one with the money, but I don't get the rest of the story.
