Car salesman accused of kidnapping a paralyzed man
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Investigators are seeking the banking information of a car salesman who is suspected of kidnapping a paralyzed man in Chattanooga.
He is also accused of taking nearly $200,000 from the man’s accounts while threatening to kill him.
An affidavit by a Chattanooga Police Officer, who is also an FBI task force member, seeks a warrant to seize a bank account of the suspect.
It’s part of an investigation into allegations of kidnapping and money laundering.
Documents show police were called to a Chattanooga bank last week and spoke with a man who had an amputated leg and was paralyzed on one side.
The man says he was kidnapped and forced to withdraw thousands in cashier’s checks and cash.
