June 21, 2018

Authorities are working with Fort Bragg officials to locate a soldier accused of attempting to steal rifles Thursday afternoon.

Authorities said Cameron Reese Bray, 23, who is wanted on a charge of attempted larceny of government weapons, fled from military officials in the area of Manchester Road and Connecticut Avenue at about 3:30 p.m.

Authorities said they believe Bray may be heading to Greensboro, which is his hometown.

Authorities said Bray is a National Guard specialist who was at Fort Bragg for training when he attempted to steal two M-4 rifles, got caught and fled.

Bray was last seen wearing green military pants and a brown T-shirt. He has several tattoos on his upper body, authorities said.

Several law enforcement agencies, including K9 units from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, are working to locate Bray.

Anybody who sees Bray should not approach him but should call 911.
