On April 8th 2011 officers with the DeFuniak Springs Police took a report from a local citizen, Glen Alan Bradshaw in reference to false imprisonment.
Bradshaw stated to officers that he had been falsely imprisoned at gun point while exiting his vehicle at a local banking institution. Bradshaw further stated that after one of two unknown male subjects placed a handgun to his head they forced him back into his vehicle and made him lye on the floor, while robbing him of three hundred dollars. He then was driven to a remote wooded location outside the city limits where his feet and hands were bound with rope. The subjects left Bradshaw and his vehicle and fled the scene on foot, at which he began to yell out when a female walking near the area heard his calls for help. She was said to have located him in the woods and drove him back to his place of employment.
Officers taking the report found numerous inconsistencies in Bradshaw’s story and began to investigate these inconsistencies. The physical evidence showed that things could not have occurred as Bradshaw stated. The witness was later interviewed by detectives where she provided a statement that she had found Bradshaw parked in his vehicle near her residence and that he appeared to be under the influence of some illegal substance. She asked him to leave the area but he stated that he could not drive. As she drove him to his place of employment Bradshaw ripped his own shirt and requested she tell his boss that she had found him bound with ropes in the woods.
Officers believe that Bradshaw provided a false report in an attempt to cover up his theft of the three hundred dollars from his employer. Bradshaw was arrested for the false report and grand theft and transported to the Walton county Jail where he is being held on a five thousand dollar bond.
