North Woods Kidnapping Report Leads to DUI Arrest

COUDERSPORT – State Police say a report of a possible kidnapping led to the arrest of a Florida man in Coudersport on September 18.

Police say they received a report of a possible kidnapping from the North Woods Tavern in Coudersport, and were provided a description of a white Ford Expedition. The vehicle was located traveling east on Route 6 near Paul’s Motel, and a traffic stop was initiated.
