A 71 year old Panama City Beach man is in the Bay County jail facing three serious charges.
Bay County sheriff's deputies arrested Benjamin Quattrocchi Sunday morning.
They say Quattrocchi paid someone to give him a ride to a house in Bay Point, where he allegedly stole a handgun.
When Quattricchi got back in the car, he allegedly threatened the driver with the gun.
The driver pulled into the parking lot of a convenience store on Magnolia Beach Drive, jumped out of the car and hid in the restroom.
Sheriff's investigators located Quattrocchi a short time later and arrested him.
He's charged with theft of a firearm, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment.
