Lee’s Summit Man Charged With Kidnapping
A man accused of stealing a running vehicle from a Lee's Summit driveway with two young children inside has been charged with several felonies, including kidnapping.
The man charged is 41-year-old Mitchell S. Green, according to a release from the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office.
Many of us may have received that Amber Alert on our phones Sunday. Green allegedly took a car, with two children inside. Both children were under the age of 4. The Amber Alert was canceled less than an hour later when a person saw the vehicle near Interstate 70 and Little Blue Parkway, which is where Green was apprehended.
After Green was questioned by investigators, he confessed that the vehicle wasn't his. The mother of the two children told Lee's Summit Police Department officers that she ran inside her house to get baby wipes and took the keys, but the vehicle was already running. She then saw a man driving away with the car and ran after it to try and stop him.
Prosecutors have asked for a $50,000 bond.
