ADA, Okla. - An Ada man has been arrested on a slew of charges after police said he locked two family members in their garage and threatened to kill them.

It happened in early August when police said a woman called 911 and reported Bobby Stone, 45, had kidnapped her after entering her home. Pontotoc County Sheriff John Christian tells News 4 there were a total of two victims held captive.

"He locked them in the garage area and, for the next four hours, ransacked the residence looking for a will. Several times, he came back to the two victims and threatened to kill them if they didn't tell him where the will was at," Christian said.

Christian said arrest warrants were issued following the August incident but it wasn't until they got a tip on a stolen vehicle in September when authorities had their chance to arrest the suspect.

"While en route to take the report of the stolen vehicle, deputies observed a dark gray mustang traveling east on Highway 3 towards Ada at a high rate of speed," Christian said.

The pursuit began near County Road 3530, with the highest speed of the chase topping 130 miles per hour. According to Christian, Stone ran several people off the road during the pursuit but collisions were not reported.

At one point, authorities lost Stone, however he was arrested shortly after a passerby spotted him walking down a nearby roadway and alerted police.

Stone faces a number of charges including first-degree burglary, kidnapping and grand larceny. He is being held without bond.
