FARGO (KFGO-AM) - A Salt Lake City truck driver arrested in Moorhead for kidnapping a female relative is now facing federal charges. Timothy Vafeades was caught in December when a state trooper at a weigh station discovered a warrant for his arrest.
Vafeades is accused of holding a female relative as a sex slave while they traveled across the country.
Federal prosecutors have charged Vafeades with kidnapping, transportation for illegal sexual activity and possession of child pornography.
Court documents say a second female victim came forward after she learned about Vafeades' arrest.
Vafeades is in federal custody. All state charges have been dropped.
