Arrest of Robert Caldwell

Special Agent in Charge Howard S. Marshall, Federal of Bureau of Investigation, and Commissioner Rodney Brewer, Kentucky State Police, jointly announce the arrest of Robert Caldwell. Robert Caldwell was on January 27 at approximately 3:35 p.m. after a vehicle and subsequent foot pursuit by the Kentucky State Police, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department, and Stanford Police Department. Caldwell had abandoned a vehicle in Pulaski County and carjacked another vehicle a short distance away. Caldwell will potentially be facing both State and Federal Charges.

This arrest stems from an early morning carjacking and kidnapping on January 22, 2015 in the Kansas City, Missouri area. The victim was able to escape after a struggle with his assailants and was recovered near St. Louis, Missouri. At least one of the suspects, believed to be Robert Caldwell, fled in the victim’s vehicle. The vehicle was later recovered in Bardstown, Kentucky after getting involved in a car accident. Caldwell is 25 years of age and from the Danville, Kentucky area.

SAC Marshall and Commissioner Rodney Brewer wish to specifically acknowledge the following law enforcement agencies who participated with the search for Robert Caldwell: Kentucky State Police, Boyle County Sheriff’s Department, Stanford Police Department, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department, Junction City Police Department, Nelson County Sheriff’s Department, Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, and Knoxville Tennessee Police Department.
