Unexpected armed visitor demands cash


Multiple charges have been filed against a man who allegedly showed up at a Warners Bridge Road home demanding money Tuesday afternoon. 

Kenneth Harold Munson, 57, of Highway 64 West is charged with aggravated assault, aggravated burglary, kidnapping and being a convicted felon in possession of a weapon. He is being held at Bedford County Jail on $55,000 bond. 

Munson was allegedly sitting in his pickup near the victim, who was seated in front of a relative’s home when Deputy Donald Perdue arrived in response to a silent 911 call. The victim asked to talk to Perdue privately and said Munson had a pistol pointed at him. 

The victim told deputies he had no idea why Munson was at his home. He said Munson allegedly showed up, demanded $800 and ordered him to get into his vehicle. The victim refused and Munson forced his way into the relative’s home looking for money, Perdue’s report said. At that point the victim called 911 and left the line open. 

Munson exited the home, allegedly ordered the victim to sit outside the home and told him he didn’t want law enforcement to show up and if he wanted to reach his next birthday they’d give him the money. 

Deputies found the gun under the seat of Munson’s truck. 

Munson allegedly claimed the victim is a drug dealer and he’d come to buy and use meth. Investigators were uncertain if Munson and the victim knew each other or had any connections. 

A computer check showed Munson has felony convictions in Illinois. Munson is being held at Bedford County Jail on $55,000 bond.
