Dover kidnapping suspect arrested in Mississippi

Timothy Safford
A second suspect wanted for the kidnapping and torture of an 82 year old Dover man.

Timothy Stafford was arrested Friday morning in Moss Point, Mississippi after a US Marshall's Task Force received a female acquaintance tip that he was in the area.

The woman told officials Safford was bragging about the crime.

Police say Safford and Shirley Smith assaulted and tied up their victim, before getting his bank card information, and stealing his car.

Safford was taken to Jackson County Jail where he'll await extradition.
