Tulsa County Jail officials have clarified confusion over a suspect believed to have posted bond and released from jail for a second time. 

In reality, Allen Shields remains behind bars and has not posted a $1.25 million bond. 

Jail officials say Shields did post a lesser bond early Tuesday, before official charges were filed, then turned himself in again last night, on the new charges and the increased bond.

Shields is charged with kidnapping a woman and her 9-year-old daughter late Monday.

A judge increased his bond Tuesday afternoon after Shields posted a $9,000 bond that morning. Records show Shields turned himself in late Tuesday night, on newly filed charges.  

FOX23’s Abbie Alford has been looking into his history of run-ins with the law yet no convictions.

Allen Shields is a 33-year-old man who police say since 1993 he’s been arrested or cited 99 times in Tulsa.

Tulsa police cite 72 traffic offenses, one sexual assault, two weapons, 13 obstruction and four kidnapping offenses.

Some of those are the same charge but were issued because of outstanding warrants.

Yet, Tulsa County court records show Shields has never been convicted of a felony.

However, FOX23 did find a few search warrants with Allen Shields’ name on them.

Records available on Wednesday show in 1998 there were three search warrants on three different addresses with Shields’ name attached.

One in Sand Springs and two in North Tulsa.

Officers came up with stolen vehicles, they believed drugs were running out of a chop shop but no drugs were found.

Then in 2004 a narcotics officer served a warrant on another home in North Tulsa with Shields’ name on it.

Drug items were recovered but that was the only information available.

Three years later Tulsa police arrested Shields on complaints he raped his ex-girlfriend.

Angie Tucker has been missing since them and homicide detectives still believe Shields knows something about her disappearance.

However, today he’s locked up on $1,250,000 bond.

Police believe he wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend and her 9-year-old daughter.

Court records show in order for Shields to post bond he must wear an ankle monitor.

Shields’ hearing to decrease his bond has been scheduled for Friday.
