EMPORIUM, Pa. (AP) ?? Police in north-central Pennsylvania say a 58-year-old kidnapping suspect apparently motivated by anger that his house was being foreclosed has continued to elude a manhunt.
Police say Thomas R. Smith, of Emporium, kidnapped a Citizens & Northern Bank employee by pretending he needed a ride because his car was disabled about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. Instead, police say Smith ordered the woman to drive to the bank at gunpoint, but she refused and jumped from her moving vehicle which crashed before Smith ran away.
Emporium police Chief John Lovett says the woman suffered only minor injuries and is being protected by police while they search for Smith in various parts of Cameron and Elk counties, about 120 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Lovett says police consider Smith dangerous because he remains ??armed and aggravated.? Smith remained at large Friday morning
