Vidalia man, mother allegedly kidnap 2 children

VIDALIA — A Vidalia man and his mother were arrested Thursday after the man allegedly kidnapped two children from Rankin County.

Adams County Sheriff Chuck Mayfield said the Adams County Sheriff’s Office received a notice to be on the look out for a 1992 Buick Regal with Louisiana license plates at approximately 1:30 a.m. Thursday.

The look-out notice said the suspect, Bradley Logan, 27, of Vidalia, had kidnapped the children from their mother’s residence in Rankin County, Mayfield said.

“The children may have been his children, but with a court disposition in Rankin County preventing him from taking them,” he said.

ACSO deputies were able to stop the vehicle on Cranfield Road after a  Franklin County sheriff’s deputy spotted the vehicle and followed it to the county line.

After deputies identified Logan and the driver, Lori Logan, both allegedly admitted to having consumed alcohol and marijuana. Two children, a juvenile and an infant, were in the vehicle.

Bradley Logan was arrested, handcuffed behind the back and placed in the back of a sheriff’s vehicle.

“At some point he was able to get the window down, open door from the outside while he had handcuffs behind back and ran,” Mayfield said. “We found him at his sister’s residence on Cranfield Road. At some point he’d gotten bolt cutters and cut the handcuffs.”

Inside the vehicle, deputies reportedly found a 30-30 rifle, a 20-gauge shotgun and two .22-cailber rifles, Mayfield said.

Bradley Logan was charged in Adams County with escape of prisoners and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Lori Logan, 59, of Vidalia, was arrested and charged with reckless driving.

Mayfield said ACSO victim’s advocate Karren Ewing took the two children and turned them over to the custody of the Department of Human Services.

Lori Logan was released from the Adams County jail on a $500 bond Thursday. Mayfield said Bradley Logan would face a kidnapping charge in Rankin County, to which he was extradited Thursday.
