A Florida Man Was Arrested for Kidnapping His Children

Posted: Updated:

 

What was supposed to be an arrest of a gasoline thief ended with a man accused of kidnapping his daughters in custody.

Authorities say 45 year-old Edward Peters was arrested Thursday morning near Greycliff, Montana. It all started when employees at a gas station reported a car matching the description of a stolen one that had driven off without paying for their gas. A deputy officer patrolling campgrounds around a dog park eventually spotted this stolen vehicle and arrested Peters.

When Peters was apprehended, his 11 and 6 year-old daughters were found with him unharmed. The girls were reportedly taken by their father from their legal guardians in Florida on September 8th. Peters has since been taken to a jail in Bozeman. As for the girls, social workers and the FBI are working together to get them returned home safely.
