Baugher Caught with Kids in Colorado
IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo.- The FBI arrested accused kidnapper John Baugher Thursday, and his two young children are safe and in police custody.
A tip that Baugher was on a greyhound bus near Denver led to the arrest.
Police say the kids panicked a little bit during the arrest, but they're okay.
Their mother Joelle Remillard is making the trip to Denver to reunite.
The trio was picked up around 11:15 Thursday morning in the small town of Idaho Springs, Colorado, about 40 miles west of Denver.
The bus they had boarded in Salt Lake City apparently broke down in a storm, and local police quickly arrested Baugher and held him until the FBI arrived.
"I entered the bus and saw him right away, he was sitting about middle row back, I told him to stand up, turn around, put his hands behind his back, he's under arrest and arrested him without a problem," said Detective Brian Radulovich of the Idaho Springs Police Department.
Police say one of the kids was playing in the isle at the time and the other sitting next to their father.
Baugher now faces a series of charges.
Walla Walla County prosecutors have charged him with two counts of felony custodial interference. Bail's been set at 100-thousand dollars, but Baugher could also face federal charges because the arrest stemmed multiple state's and the FBI was involved.
