An Altoona, Wisconsin man faces charges relating to burglary and attempted kidnapping after authorities allege he broke into the garage of a Shoreview woman he planned to kidnap.

Nathan James Homme, 39, is charged in Ramsey County with one count of burglary in the first degree and one count of attempted kidnapping, according to court records.


According to the criminal complaint, the woman's garage was broken into earlier this month.

A search warrant executed at Homme's home in Wisconsin allegedly found evidence he had executed the break-in and had written plans to kidnap someone.

Deputies also allegedly found what they termed a 'kidnapping kit,' containing rope, binoculars, latex gloves, several rolls of duct tape, a lantern, handcuffs, a facemask, a blindfold, garbage bags, a screwdriver, a multitool, a choke tube for a shotgun, a gun lock, a holster and band aids, all inside of a large gray box, according to the complaint.

The complaint goes on to state the woman fears the situation will turn into a murder-suicide with her and her two children.
