The incident happened on January 7 on Miarfield Arch. Two men rang a doorbell to a home, according to court documents. One man had a gun. The other had a pink and black stun gun.

When the victim answered the door, the two forced their way into the home. Police say the two made off with jewelry and money.

As police tried to solve the case, the victim told them he recognized one of the suspects from his time at Western Branch High School. He used the 2014 yearbook to point out Scott to police, according to the search warrant.

Police are still looking for the second suspect and are searching Scott's phone records.
