KALISPELL — Cynthia Abcug of Colorado was arrested north of Kalispell on Monday on a felony second-degree kidnapping charge.

Officers with the Kalispell Police Department, assisted by an FBI agent, arrested Abcug off of U.S. Highway 93 north of Kalispell at 3 p.m.

Kalispell Police Chief Doug Overman said the FBI tipped off the department that Abcug was in the area.

Police then watched her vehicle and pulled Abcug over in a safe location.

Abcug was taken to the Flathead County jail and is being held on a $250,000 bond from Douglas County, Colorado.

Overman said the child at the center of the kidnapping charge was not with Abcug when they stopped her. One male was detained, but was released on scene.

No other details were released.
