Zahra Baker’s Father Arrested


Much like stepmother Elisa, Zahra Baker’s father, Adam Baker, was arrested early this morning and faces several charges unrelated to his daughter’s disappearance.

Police moved in and he was arrested just before 6 a.m. for the following charges:

– five counts of worthless checks

– two counts of communicating threats

– one count of assault with a deadly weapon

– one count of failure to return rental property

Police also began searching around Dudley Shoals Road in Caldwell County before daylight today. The area is less than a mile from where Zahra’s stepmother lived three years ago.

Police said that they are following up on a “promising lead” in the search for Zahra.

Adam Baker is currently being held at the Catawba County Detention Center on a $7,000 bond.

    Well, I suppose LE doesn’t think he’s “helping” anymore. If he can get a bondsman, it would only cost him $700 to get out of jail. Based on what I’ve been reading, that may not be an easy task.

    Oh, and I doubt a bondsman would accept a check from him!

    Just hope this means the noose is tightening and Zahra will be found and brought home to be loved and cherished the way she should have experienced in life!
