Post Man Charged with Kidnapping

PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Crook County man faces numerous charges, including kidnapping, assault, burglary and theft. Sheriff's deputies arrested 34-year-old Josef Taylor of Post, after a woman claimed she was kidnapped and held against her will at a cabin for several days. She says she was physically assaulted during that time.


The Crook County Sheriff's Office says they have responded to previous domestic assaults between the two and the alleged victim had a "no contact" order in place against Taylor.


When deputies searched Taylor's home during the investigation, they recovered stolen property connected to several nearby burglaries. Taylor was booked into the Crook County Jail. Bail is set at $172,000.
