Minn. man charged with kidnapping arrested in Mexicoby Brandt Williams, Minnesota Public Radio
Minneapolis — A Minnesota man charged with kidnapping his wife has been arrested, FBI officials said.
Officials say Timothy Glen Caskey was arrested without incident by Mexican state police officials in Matamoros, Mexico. They also say they've recovered his wife, Roberta Caskey.
Caskey is accused of kidnapping his wife on July 14 from Virginia, Minnesota shortly following his release from prison.
On the morning of July 14, Timothy Caskey was released from Northeast Regional Correctional Center near Duluth after serving 50 days of a 90-day sentence for violating a domestic violence no contact order and making harassing phone calls to his estranged wife.
Less than an hour after Caskey was released, his wife notified police that she had received a phone call from him, in violation of an order for protection. Roberta Caskey, 44, said she hung up the phone when she realized it was her husband. Later that morning, she called police to report more phone calls.
Caskey allegedly kidnapped Roberta that evening as she was out walking, by pulling up next to her in his pickup truck and dragging her inside.
FBI officials say Caskey is also being investigated for a bank robbery on July 15 in Kansas and a pickup truck theft the next day in Texas.
Caskey will be extradited to the U.S. soon and Roberta Caskey is expected to return to Minnesota.
