MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Blood may be thicker than water, but apparently is not thicker than cold, hard cash.
Murfreesboro resident Xavier Swader tells police that he was hanging out with his cousin, Cedric Smith, Monday afternoon. Swader says that when Smith asked him for gas money, he mentioned that he’d just gotten his tax refund.
The 25-year-old Swader alleges that at that point Smith put a gun to his head and demanded all the money. Swader says he turned over the $850 he had in his pocket and left.
