MIDLAND - A Midland man is behind bars for taking a stolen gun but police also say they found the gun in a stolen pickup truck.

Last week, Gaines County authorities pulled over Shaquille McAfee and Xavier Whiteside.

They say McAfee was the passenger and the truck they were in was stolen out of Midland.

Authorities searched the pickup and they found a stolen gun underneath McAfee's seat.

McAfee told officers he didn't know it was stolen.

However, Whiteside told police that McAfee took the gun from his cousin because he was worried about some people and that McAfee knew the gun was stolen.
