One of three suspects in an alleged September kidnapping for ransom in the Farmersville area has been arrested, police said.
Gerardo Antonio Reyes, 44, was arrested in Glendale, Ariz., with the help of local police and the U.S. Marshals Service, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department said.
The sheriff’s department said two other suspects are wanted, and released photos of those men. They are considered armed and dangerous, the sheriff’s department said.
The sheriff’s department said it started investigating the case Oct. 5 after the victim contacted authorities a week after the incident.
After the kidnapping, the suspects threatened to kill the victim if a Lindsay resident did not give them a large amount of money. The resident complied, fearing for the victim’s life, and paid an undisclosed amount in exchange for the victim.
