A Tallahassee man is in custody after he is accused of grabbing three guns from two local businesses. 

Jason White, 24, faces three counts of firearm thefts from Cash America Pawn and Academy Sports Friday.

At 11:21 a.m., Tallahassee Police officers were called to Cash America Pawn, 2535 S. Adams St., where employees reported a man had asked to look at two handguns, a .45 and a .380 caliber handgun. The man picked up both handguns, ran outside the store without paying for them and took off in a silver Toyota. 

Almost four hours later, at 3:12 p.m., TPD received a call from Academy Sports, 3122 Mahan Drive, where employees had detained a man who tried to run out of the store with a handgun, ammunition, and a backpack, which were stolen from the business.  When officers arrived at the scene, they arrested White on suspicion of stealing a .40 caliber handgun from Academy Sports.

Burglary Crimes Unit investigators reviewed evidence from Cash America Pawn and connected White to both cases, TPD said.  During a search of White’s silver Toyota Corolla, investigators recovered the .45 caliber handgun stolen from Cash America Pawn.
