Police in Cincinnati, Ohio breathed a collective sigh of relief when 52-year-old Barry Pollard dropped off 16-year-old Ashley Snell unharmed late in the night of October 6th.
Police say Pollard returned the teenager to the very church where they met.
The following morning Pollard tried to contact his estranged wife who then phoned the authorities as soon as she saw him pull into her driveway.
Pollard was taken into custody and arrested on a $250 thousand dollar bond.
He was charged with Felony Interference with Custody.
Ashley is back home with her parents.
