ELKINS -

The Randolph County Sheriff's Department has charged an Elkins man with kidnapping.

Sheriff's deputies said James Cornett, 19, approached two girls and offered them money to come back to a woman's apartment and pretend to be that woman's children on Sept 23.

The woman was also trying to get extra money from a man under false pretenses by claiming she had children, when she didn't.

One of girls was drugged and later became dizzy.

Cornett is in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail with bail set at $50,000.
