BAIL GRANTED IN NUDE KIDNAPPING, CAR CRASH CASE
Three people arrested in the nude after a bizarre kidnapping south of Edmonton this week made brief appearances in court Thursday. Two women and one man were arrested naked at a Monday morning crash scene in Nisku after a truck driver was rammed from behind when he stopped to help a man, woman and baby who police later said escaped from the suspects’ vehicle. RCMP said drugs and/or alcohol may have been a factor in the case. A 27- year- old man and two women, aged 35 and 30, are facing a string of charges in the wake of the kidnappings. The 35- year- old woman, who was released from custody, made a first appearance Thursday. She is charged with two counts of kidnapping, mischief damaging property over $5,000 and resisting a peace officer. The other woman has been charged with three counts of kidnapping and one count resisting a peace officer. The 27-yearold man, her husband, faces the same charges. The two were granted $ 3,000 bail after appearing by CCTV from the Edmonton Remand Centre.
