Trio Charged With Kidnapping, Investigation Continues

The OCSO received information Monday that 23-year old Bethany
Stanley of Niceville had been kidnapped on Sunday and was being beaten and driven around the area in a white GMC pick-up truck.

Investigators were told that 22-year old Brittany Plitt and 23-year old Heather Sutton of Fort Walton Beach believed Stanley had stolen drugs from their residence.

After an intense search for the suspect’s vehicle, a deputy spotted the truck around 4:20 p.m. at a home on Calhoun Avenue where the victim and suspects were located.

Stanley told investigators Plitt and Sutton picked her up at the Circle K on Racetrack Road and then took her to a home on Hollywood Boulevard.

She says she was attacked there by Plitt and Sutton, as well as two other females.

She says she was tied up and repeatedly beaten over the next day until she was rescued.

Plitt and Sutton are charged with kidnapping, aggravated battery, and robbery.

28-year old Chase Stewart of Destin is also charged with principal to kidnapping.
