Three on kidnap charges

Three men have been charged with kidnapping and robbery over an incident in Christchurch early on Tuesday.

They are jointly charged with kidnapping a man, and robbing him of a car, a bank card, cellphone, and a set of keys. No pleas have been entered.

Cruz Richmond, 27, of Upper Riccarton, was remanded without plea to Thursday by Community Magistrate Langridge so that the police could check a potential bail address.

Chad Ian Taylor, 27, of Phillipstown, applied for bail before Judge Bill Hastings at a separate hearing but bail was refused. He was remanded in custody for an application for release on electronically monitored bail to be heard on August 20.

Jonathan Rex Voice, 26, of no fixed abode in central Christchurch, made no bail application because no approved address was available. He was remanded in custody to August 9 when defence counsel Sunny Teki-Clark said a bail application would be made.
