TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – The Blue Mound Police Department is searching for three men wanted for Aggravated Kidnapping.
Police said the men, Michael Powell, Austin Dunlap and Bobby Wilson are armed and very dangerous. They’re accused of kidnapping a man from a house in Blue Mound, wrapping him in duct tape and beating him up. Their alleged motive was the victim had reported an ex-girlfriend’s drug use to her parole officer. She in turn called Powell, Dunlap and Wilson to “come take care of the guy” for her.
Blue Mound police chief Randy Baker said the victim eventually was able to escape a vehicle that the trio was driving him around in. The escape happened near a game room in Haltom City or Fort Worth where the alleged kidnappers were beating him again. But someone outside saw what was happening, said they were calling police, and the group took off.
Witnesses described a gold diesel truck and a white Mitsubishi car used in the crime.
Each of the suspects is facing a $50,000 bond once they’re captured.
Anyone with information about their whereabouts should contact the Blue Mound Police Department at (817) 232-0661 or call Crimestoppers at (817)469-tips.
Police said do not approach or try to apprehend any of the men.
