Jeremy Michael Herrera was charged with Aggravated Kidnapping in connection to an incident that occurred Saturday evening in the parking lot of Giz and Hums located at 1425 W Beauregard.
San Angelo Police were called to the location around 11:30 p.m. for the report of an unknown problem. When they arrived, they met with a complainant who told them his 16-year-old nephew had been taken at knifepoint by an acquaintance.
During the investigation, Police learned Herrera was enroute to the Desert Shadow Apartments with the victim. Police responded to the area, located Herrera and detained him.
Detectives with the San Angelo Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division responded to the scene and learned Herrera and several acquaintances were in the Giz and Humz parking lot earlier in the evening when Herrera discovered money was missing from his vehicle. Herrera accused the victim of taking the money, forced the victim into a vehicle at knifepoint, and drove the victim to an area near Lake Nasworthy where he threatened him at knifepoint. When Herrera did not locate the alleged stolen money, he drove the victim to the Desert Shadow Apartment Complex. The victim was not injured during the incident.
Herrera was transported to the Tom Green County Jail without incident. He remains jailed on $100,000 bond.
Detective Michael Gaeta is the lead investigator on the case.
