Kidnapping Charges

A female informant is un-injured after being held against her will during a raid just outside of Bowling Green.

The informant completed a controlled purchase of prescription drugs from Lloyd Butch Skillern. Following the sale, she was forced to disrobe while she was searched for an electronic device. She was then held for more than half-an-hour.

Skillern fled the scene and is charged with kidnapping in addition to other charges.

Detectives were able to seize more than $31,000 in cash, 18 long guns, and four hand guns, along with various prescription drugs.
