Mohave County — On January 16, 2019, the Idaho State Police notified the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) about a parental kidnapping which took place within the jurisdiction of the Nampa Police Department in Idaho. Nampa police then told AZDPS the suspect had threatened his wife about taking their children to Mexico.
Nampa detectives told AZDPS the kidnapper and his three children were in Arizona and eventually led troopers to the suspect vehicle traveling northbound along US 93 at milepost 142, near Wikieup, Arizona. At 4:30 p.m., troopers initiated a traffic stop and took Jose A. Hernandez Jr., age 25 of Nampa, ID, into custody. Three children, ages 18-months, 3 and 5-years-old were also in the pickup truck along with an 18-year-old woman.
The children were flown by an AZDPS Ranger helicopter and crew to a Kingman hospital where they were evaluated and deemed unharmed. They were turned over to the custody of the Arizona Department of Child Safety.
The 18-year-old woman was not a suspect in the case and was released.
Hernandez and the investigation were both turned over to AZDPS detectives. He was booked into the Mohave County Jail on a no-bond felony warrant out of Nampa, Idaho.
Nampa police detectives are working with AZDPS detectives to extradite Hernandez back to Idaho. Sergeant Brian Jones of the Nampa Police Department said, “We can’t thank Arizona troopers enough. Because of their assistance, the children were found safe and this case has a positive ending.”

Beat reporter Steve Gilbert answers questions from D-backs fans.
MLB Pipeline recently unveiled it's annual All-Defense Team, but there were only so many spots to fill. It made us realize there were so many outstanding defenders across all 30 organizations. Evaluating defense is still very much subjective, with metrics measuring fielding still imperfect. Still, each system has glovework that stands out more than others, and we considered many to present one best defender from each organization.
The Single Guy Blog
Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!
