ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man is facing charges after authorities say he tortured a man for more than a day in his home after accusing him of stealing.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said Marcel Bland was arrested Saturday after deputies found a stun gun, a claw hammer, scissors and a mallet inside his home. Deputies say some of the instruments had blood and the alleged torture devices were found neatly lined up on a kitchen counter.

Authorities say deputies were called to the home after his girlfriend called 911, telling dispatchers she was being held against her will.

Bland is facing aggravated battery and false imprisonment charges and is being held on $100,000 cash-only bond.

It was not known if he had an attorney.
