Gregory Raymond Denny Jr., 38 (pictured), and his wife, Karen Evon Denny, 52, allegedly handcuffed the victim, Cherriebelle Magada Gabalonos Hibbard, and said they were taking her to San Diego’s Lindbergh Field to be deported, according to a federal indictment unsealed Friday in San Diego.

Gregory Denny, a former bounty hunter, told Hibbard that he was a U.S. marshal and showed a badge and credentials when he came to Hibbard’s home in Hemet, according to the indictment.

When Hibbard balked, the Dennys warned that she and her husband could be sent to prison for five years, according to the indictment. The husband then purchased an airline ticket and the Dennys allegedly escorted her to the plane.

The charges include kidnapping, conspiracy, impersonating a federal officer and making false statements to a federal officer.
