An East Texas Reserve Officer Claims He Was Kidnapped

The Gregg County Sheriff's Department is investigating the alleged carjacking of a Reserve Kilgore Police Officer. John Cannon, Jr. says he was driving on Highway 271 South early Tuesday (7/18), when he noticed a woman's car on the side of the road.

Cannon says when he pulled over to help her, a man pulled a gun on him and forced him to drive the couple to Dallas and then Oklahoma City.

In Oklahoma City, he says the couple made him lie face down on a dirt road and then walked away.

When police found Cannon they said he was dehydrated and confused. His car was found burned in Oklahoma City.
