POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT)-  Police in Poplar Bluff arrest a woman a week after she was wanted for questioning in the robbery and kidnapping of another woman.

Tuesday police arrested Reyna Kibo-Gue of Poplar Bluff at a residence in the 2000 block of Kentucky Avenue.  Officers were allowed to search the residence and found her hiding under a bed in a child's bedroom.  Police say the arrest came after officers received a confidential tip.  

According to Poplar Bluff Police Lt. David Sutton, on March 20 Susan Bruner reported to police that the incident happened as she was leaving Wal-Mart around 6:30a.  Bruner told police a woman, identified as Reyna Kibo-Gue, came up to her asking for a ride.  Bruner said no, but police say the suspect got into her vehicle anyway and insisted Bruner take her to a nearby residence.

While in the vehicle, police say Bruner was threatened at knife-point, forced to give up her wedding ring set and cash.  When she told Kibo-Gue she did not have any cash on her, police say, Bruner was forced to get $100 out of an ATM.  Police say the suspect got out of Bruner's vehicle in the 500 block of Lester Street.

Kibo-Gue was charged with kidnapping, robbery first degree and armed criminal action.  Bond for those charges was set at $75,000.  No bond was given on an addition charge of parole violation.
