Kidnapping Suspect, Shane J. Soares, 30 Kidnapping Suspect, Shane J. Soares, 30

MOSES LAKE, Wash. - A 30-year-old Grant County man was arrested for kidnapping his roommate's two, young boys.  According to authorities, deputies were alerted to the situation after a frantic call from the three and four-year-olds' mother, early Friday morning.

Around 12:15 a.m., Friday, 911 dispatchers received a call from Celena Robinson. Robinson was frantic and said that her roommate, Shane J. Soares, 30, had kidnapped her two boys. She told dispatchers that Soares had accused her of poisoning the children. According to Robinson, Soares awakened the two kidnap victims in their bedroom, scooped up one child under each arm and ran from the home they share on foot. She told authorities that the suspect had no legal rights to the boys.

Deputies who responded to the call found the suspect with the two boys at Arlington Dr. near Patton. According to authorities, Soares grabbed the children and started running. Deputies caught the suspect after a short chase and returned the boys to their mother, unharmed.

This was not deputies first encounter with Shane Soares. On the previous night, deputies responded to an area near the suspect's home for reports of a man yelling and screaming and causing a disturbance. When questioned by deputies about the disturbance, Soares said he was acting out because "the Lord told him to," and his home was "infested with demons."

Soares was booked into the Grant Co. Jail on suspicion of two counts of second degree kidnapping.
