Palatka, FL– Talk about a change in circumstances. The bounty hunter had to turn himself into Police today on charges he falsely imprisoned a man awaiting trial on sex offenses to a child. William Snodgrass alleges Cobra Staubs handcuffed him and detained him against his will for one hour while questioning whether he had anything to do with the disappearance of Haleigh Ann Marie Cummings. It is not known at this time if Kim Picazio, attorney to Crystal Sheffield will represent Staub’s in these charges, but the pair are admitted friends. Bail is set at $5004.00

P.I. In Haleigh Case Arrested On Kidnapping Charge
Staubs Accused Of Holding Man Against His Will

POSTED: 3:38 pm EDT May 22, 2009
UPDATED: 4:01 pm EDT May 22, 2009


SATSUMA, Fla. -- A private investigator and bondsman related to the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings was arrested and charged with false imprisonment Friday.

William Eugene Staubs, 51, of Weston, Fla., is accused of taking Daniel Everett Snodgrass, 51, from his Satsuma home against his will on March 20.

Staubs, also known as "Cobra," had been working closely with attorney Kim Picazio, who represents Crystal Sheffield, the mother of Haleigh Cummings. Haleigh has been missing since February, and was last seen in her Satsuma home.

Haleigh Cummings, 5, was reported missing on Feb. 11.

It all started when Snodgrass was arrested and charged with sexual battery of a child under 12. Snodgrass filed a complaint saying that Staubs called him out of his home on a loudspeaker with a siren on.

According to a news release, Snodgrass told Detective Ken Taylor that Staubs told Snodgrass he was revoking Snodgrass' bond, threw Snodgrass to the ground, handcuffed him and forced him into Staubs vehicle. Staubs then reportedly drove away from the residence headed towards Palatka, according to the release. After driving a short distance and making several telephone calls, Staubs reportedly turned around, drove Snodgrass back to his residence and released him, the news release said.

Jail officials said that Snodgrass had been bonded out of jail when the incident occurred.

Staubs is being held on $5,004 bond at the Putnam County Jail.

Since Haleigh disappeared, little information has been uncovered regarding her whereabouts.

Her father, Ronald Cummings, recently married his girlfriend Misty Croslin, who was home at the time Haleigh went missing.

William “Cobra” Staubs – What Really Happened In Putnam County Today
Cobra has been tirelessly looking for the missing girl, Haleigh Cummings. Of course not all help is viewed as useful. And certainly Cobra has created a certain amount of havoc in his investigations. He is a rough and ready guy, he is also the nicest man you could ever meet. It is an overused phrase, but Cobra is the guy that would give you the shirt off his back.

I reported yesterday that an arrest warrant had been issued for Cobra, and he is a man of his word, an honorable man. He said that he would turn himself in to Putnan County early this morning, and he did just that.

When I spoke to him, and some other people yesterday, the game plan was to already have the Bond filed, and it should just be a question of walking in, filling out the forms, a picture, and fingerprints and walk out again.

Of course the best laid plans of men and mice do have a tendency of going astray. Today was a fine example, a telling example. Know your friends before trusting them.

The bond had been arranged through a local company, a company that Cobra had some previous dealings with. (It won’t take much research to find the name, but I for one do not wish to publish it!). He arrived at the appointed time, all of the paperwork was in order, and the bond company went in and posted it.

Cobra then surrendered to the police, and was processed. All was going well, he had just been told that he was free to go, when the phone rang, the bond company had changed their mind! The door was locked, Cobra was led to the holding cells, forced to strip (likely not a pretty sight) and made to put on prison garb.

According to reports a second local bondsman refused to help, offering the sage advice ‘you are going away for a long time’. That statement blew my mind, Cobra always talks in such glowing terms about the brothers and sisters in the trade, and how they look after each other.

The good news is, there are decent people in this world, a bond company out of Miami stepped in, and after two hours behind bars Cobra was freed.
