A father was arrested in Nevada County after he allegedly made threats to kill his child and hurt the child's mother.
Jacob Michael Siegfried, 33, was booked into Wayne Brown Correctional Facility on suspicion of making criminal threats and violation of a court order on Monday, deputies said.
Nevada County deputies were aware of a Sunday alert that said Siegfried was wanted for suspicion of armed robbery in neighboring Placer County. Not long after learning of the BOLO -- be on the lookout in police jargon -- Nevada County authorities received a report from the mother of a three year old that stated Siegfried had failed to return their child to her after court-ordered visitation ended.
"Siegfried allegedly made threats to harm the female and kill the child if she called law enforcement," stated a Nevada County sheriff's department press release.
Deputies said Siegfried was eventually located registered under a false name at a Grass Valley motel. SWAT team members, along with hostage negotiators, set up at the motel.
He was arrested without incident when he left his room with his child. The child was safely taken into protective custody.
