Authorities say soldier lied about kidnapping in Trumbull County

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Warren Municipal Court judge has dismissed charges filed against two people who had been accused of kidnapping and robbing a Hermitage soldier.

24-year old Daniel Boone, and 23-year-old Juan Jordan had been charged with aggravated robbery and kidnapping.

29-year old Army Staff Sergeant William Hollis told Howland police that on January 20,  the two men flagged him down and took control of his car on the evening of January 20th. Hollis says the men forced him to withdraw $400 from an several ATMs.

But now authorities say that Sgt. Hollis has admitted lying to them about the location of the incident. Authorities say the kidnapping actually occurred at a motel along route 422 where Hollis arranged to meet with a woman, and not at the intersection of North Road and Adrian Drive as he originally told police.

Surveillance video shows the three together at the ATM. Hollis fled from the suspects and phoned police from a nearby restaurant.

No one is currently charged in connection with the incident, however authorities continue to investigate.
