Who said police work is difficult?
After officers got reports Friday that Jeremiah Allen had kidnapped his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint and driven her to his apartment, a quick thinker telephoned Allen and asked him to drop by the police station.
Allen did, still toting his gun. And he brought the kidnap victim.
Once there, he was arrested and the woman was set free unharmed. Allen, 29, was charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault and weapon offenses.
“Police called him, told him to bring the woman down to the station and he said, ‘OK,”’ said Capt. James Murphy.
