False imprisonment claim leads to multiple arrests

April 1, 2015

LeGrand, Iowa - A call from a California mother reporting that her teenage son had been held against his will at a LeGrand residence lead to a search warrant and six arrests.

March 31, 2015 at approximately 5:30 P.M. Marshall County deputies received a report from a California woman reporting that her sixteen year-old son had allegedly been compelled by threats and deception to stay at 204 N. Grandview Drive in LeGrand for the previous two weeks.
