Court report
Court report

A man who is accused of being involved in a kidnapping incident at Drinkstone more than five years ago has appeared in court.

Zebediah Rose, 26, from Croydon, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday facing charges of kidnap, blackmail and false imprisonment.

He was charged in September after answering police bail at the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre.

It followed an incident in September 2009 in which a man in his 30s reported to police that he had been forced to get into a car after being threatened by four men at a property in Drinkstone.

The man said he was then driven to London where he was held against his will at a flat, but was able to escape early the following day.

Rose, who did not indicate a plea to any of the charges, was told by Judge Rupert Overbury that he would continue to be granted bail until a plea and case management hearing, which is due to take place on April 10.
