Woman found chained in shed in North Carolina

Gary Alen McNair/Hoke County Sheriff's Office

RAEFORD, N.C. (WNCN) — Deputies rescued a woman Tuesday who had been chained up in a shed in Hoke County, authorities said.

Deputies responding to a disturbance at a property in the 200 block of Quick Wilkerson Road in Raeford heard a commotion from a shed behind the residence, according to the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies looked in the shed, they found a woman restrained with rope and chain. She reported she had been tied up and placed in the shed against her will, deputies said.

Gary Alen McNair was detained at the scene and has been charged with second-degree kidnapping, authorities said.

McNair, 52, lives in the 600 block of Ray Street in Raeford.

His mother said she was the person who called police. She heard a noise when she was on the back porch feeding her cats and didn’t know what was going on, she said.

“I said, ‘Oh my God! What in the world?’ I hurried up and shut my door,” Verdell McNair said.

She said she went and got a gun.

“My gun was loaded, because I didn’t know what was going on,” she said.

McNair is expected in court on Wednesday.
