Kidnapping incident, one arrested

From the desk of Sheriff Scott Bradley

 

On September 16, 2013, The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department investigated an alleged kidnapping that stemmed from an earlier incident at the same address.  The reporting party alleged that Crystal Bigelow, 33, ofClintonhad taken him and their mutual child at gunpoint where they were forced to drive around.  During this trip, Bigelow allegedly made threats to do kill the driver.  It is also reported that Bigelow fired a .44 magnum inside the cab of the truck into the floor board.  The drive ended some time later at a residence off of Cullum lane in the Choctaw area.  It is then that the reporting party fled the scene and notified the Sheriff’s Department. 

  Crystal Bigelow was arrested a short time later and another residence without incident.  Ms. Bigelow was transported to the Van Buren County Detention Center where she is currently being held on a $125,000 bond.  The charges include two counts of Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault, Felony Terroristic Threatening and Felony Child Endangerment.
