YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Police say a 20-year-old Yakima woman was found bound and gagged in the truck of a car near the Yakima airport after being kidnapped from her home Thursday.
Police say the woman was taken from her home by her mother's ex-boyfriend.
The Yakima Herald-Republic reported Friday the 44-year-old man is jailed pending possible charges of burglary and kidnapping.
