Man indicted on seven felony counts
An indictment was handed down Friday in the August case of a local kidnapping at gunpoint, but the man charged with seven felony counts still has not been apprehended by police.
Troopers allege Bret Herrick, 51, arrived uninvited at a home on Aug. 3 where three people were present. He then threatened an 18-year-old male with a gun, forced him out of his East Skyline Drive home and into Herrick’s truck. He drove him to the Wells Fargo and made him withdraw $250.
The victim got away from Herrick after he threw most of the money in Herrick’s face, in a distraction that gave him moments to flee.
Troopers charged Herrick with kidnapping, four counts of third-degree assault, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, all felonies, and third-degree theft. A grand jury on Friday indicted Herrick on seven of those charges.
A warrant has been issued for Herrick but he was not arrested until –
Troopers said Herrick is mentally unstable and involved in narcotics and believed to always carry a weapon.
