The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office reports a man already charged there with two counts of kidnapping, three counts of assault, a count of threat of violence and a count of false imprisonment has been arrested by the Vancouver, Washington Police Department.

Scott Kendrick Lindgren was apprehended Wednesday night and is being held in the Clark County Jail on warrants out of Carlton County for felony threats of violence and first-degree aggravated tampering with a witness, a release Wednesday evening said.

According to the original criminal complaint against Lindgren, sheriff’s deputies had received a call of a juvenile male being held by Lindgren against his will at Lindgren’s house in Wrenshall around midnight of May 15. Upon arrival, deputies found Lindgren, his girlfriend and the juvenile in a vehicle about to leave. The juvenile was “in horrible shape, injured, and needing medical attention,” the complaint stated.

Deputies learned Lindgren had allegedly summoned the 17-year-old to his house late, about midnight.

There, Lindgren and others are said to have tied the victim to a chair and pistol-whipped him, pointed a .45-caliber pistol at him, racked the pistol to eject a bullet, and dry-fired the gun in his presence.

Then, early in the morning on May 22, that Wrenshall residence – located on the 800 block of County Road 18 – was the scene of a fire. Lindgren was still in jail at that time.

The Wrenshall Fire Department, assisted by the Carlton, Esko, Blackhoof and Mahtowa Fire Departments, eventually brought the blaze under control. The residence was believed to have been unoccupied at the time of the fire.

The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office later reported Lindgren posted bond on May 23. And that the additional warrants were issued after an investigation into his reported activities since his release.

The release Wednesday night said arrangements will be made to try to bring Lindgren back to Carlton County for court pending any future appearances in Washington.
