Alleged kidnapping victim now in jail

A woman who was at the center of a kidnapping investigation is now behind bars.

19-year-old Brittany Kustes was arrested yesterday at the Bullitt County Courthouse on charges filed before she was allegedly kidnapped last month.

The circuit court clerk in Bullitt County says a judge ordered Kustes to serve 30 days in jail as part of a drug court sanction.

Investigators have been interviewing Kustes and another woman who allege they were held against their will by Vernon Elwell.

Elwell was arrested last week.
