February 28th, 2011 by Staff

Three men have been arrested in connection with a kidnapping and armed robbery that occurred Friday.

Terrance Bugiada, 20, Christopher Burgess, 20, and Nicholas Keller, 19, were all arrested in connection with the case.

According to the report, Larry Williams, Jr., 23, told deputies he was at Bugiada’s residence when he was confronted by all three suspects. He said they punched him and forced him to drive a vehicle to a Bank of America on Cortez Blvd.

At the Bank of America, Williams, Jr. said the three suspects brought him to the ATM and forced him to show his bank account balance. He was then told to withdraw $280 from his account and give it to Bugiada.

The report says Bugiada was then forced to get back into the car and while they were driving, he was continually threatened to be harmed if he called law enforcement.

Williams, Jr. was eventually dropped off in the area of his own residence in Spring Hill.

Williams, Jr. did not come forward with the report until a day later because of the threats against him, he told investigators.

Shortly after telling deputies what happened, all three suspects were found and arrested. They are now in the Hernando County Jail, all charged with kidnapping and robbery, and each being held on a bond of $40,000.
