Garth's ex in hijack drama
Quintine Cornelius Harper was charged with kidnapping for extortion, a felony, in connection with the forced kidnapping of Sandy Brooks Monday.
According to press reports, a bail bonding company were actively searching for Harper on Monday for failing to appear on a Tulsa County criminal case. Their search led them to Sandy Brooks’ residence on Keetonville Road in Rogers County, where she told bondsmen Harper was on her property.
Harper, armed with a semi-automatic pistol, approached Brooks after learning the bondsmen were attempting to capture him, and forced her to drive him off the property after he entered her vehicle, with intent to have Brooks drive to a bank and withdraw approximately $16,000 to make his bond. Just west of the Tulsa County line, Brooks stopped her vehicle and fled into a QuikTrip store on the south side of the highway
