An Evans man was arrested Friday after authorities say he kidnapped his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint early Friday.
John Daryl Maynard, 42, of Cape Cod Drive, was arrested in Richmond County about midday and was charged with armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.
Maynard’s 44-year-old ex-girlfriend said she returned to her Martinez home on Padrick Street after work at about 1:50 a.m. Friday. Maynard, who was hiding with a handgun inside a truck parked under the carport, confronted his ex and forced her back into her Dodge Stratus, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report. Maynard forced her to drive back to the Burger King restaurant she manages in Richmond County and withdraw $1,750 from the safe.
Maynard then ordered his ex-girlfriend to drive to the Georgia Bank and trust on Columbia Road in Martinez. She withdrew $360 while being held at gunpoint, according to the report. Maynard returned the woman to her home and left in a purple Geo Prizm.
