Woman held on alleged kidnapping incident

A Lower Valley woman is being held today for probable cause following an alleged kidnapping attempt.

The Yakima County prosecutor's office identified the woman as Alma Reynoso, and said she is being held on $200,000 bail.

According to the Yakima County clerk's office, the probable cause stems from an alleged incident that took place on Thursday, June 30, in Sunnyside.

Officials report that Reynoso was in Egley's Bar in downtown Sunnyside, where she allegedly encountered a man she had known for five years. Officials state that at 2 a.m. Reynoso and the victim drove away from the bar in a Jaguar that the victim had been driving.

Reynoso, the clerk's office noted, was driving and went to Outlook, where four men allegedly approached the car and pulled the victim out. According to the police report, the victim was then held hostage for $20,000, before he eventually escaped and contacted authorities.

Reynoso then reportedly turned herself in accompanied by her attorney.

The Yakima County Sheriff's office is preparing the probable cause statement against Reynoso, the clerk's office said. She is scheduled to be arraigned on July 19 in Yakima County Superior Court.
