Bail agents accused of kidnapping, robbing women
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A 34-count indictment was returned Friday against two bail enforcement agents and one agent's son by a Clark County grand jury.
The three men are 61-year-old John Kevin McCabe of Las Vegas; 48-year-old Charles McChesney of Las Vegas; and 22-year-old John Kevin McCabe Jr. of Las Vegas.
The three men are accused of kidnapping and robbing women that were clients of John McCabe.
McCabe is a licensed bail agent and McChesney is a licensed bail enforcement agent for the Nevada Division of Insurance. McCabe Jr. is not licensed.
According to the indictment, McCabe allegedly charged more than $14,000 to Margaret Pressler's credit cards without prior authorization in June of 2010. After she reversed the charges, McCabe allegedly kidnapped her from a room at Budget Suites.
He held her in his vehicle for about 3 hours, demanding that she provide him with money and other personal property.
The indictment says that McCabe forced her to sign personal checks naming him as payee and forced her to give him her bank debit card. He then allegedly withdrew money from her accounts.
In January 2011, McCabe, McChesney and McCabe Jr. are accused of breaking down Unique Hunt's door and holding her and her 3 children at gunpoint. During the incident, they allegedly took her laptop computer, video game console and her vehicle.
Two more attacks followed.
McCabe is also accused of kidnapping Kirsten Shawn in April 2012 and holding her for 24 hours. During that time, he took money and property from her.
And in April 2013, McCabe and McCabe Jr. allegedly kidnapped a woman and extorted property from her at gunpoint. In addition, McCabe is accused of sexually assaulting the woman.
Finally, in May and June of this year, McCabe attempted to prevent or dissuade an alleged victim from reporting him. McCabe is also accused of being in possession of methamphetamine in May.
Their arraignment is set for 9:30 a.m. Sept. 23.
