Final 3 suspects caught in Gastonia kidnappings

GASTONIA, N.C. (AP) – Police in Gastonia have captured the final three suspects wanted in a string of kidnappings and robberies.

The Gaston Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/GzyuTV) 37-year-old Adrian Taiwan Goode, 21-year-old Imani Marquell Lee Jordan and 25-year-old James Timothy Alexander were arrested last Saturday morning.

Along with 21-year-old Reginald Tyrone Rice, the men are jailed under bonds ranging from $1 million to $2 million for conspiracy, armed robbery and kidnapping.

In each case, the victims were forced to drive to ATMs, withdraw money from their bank accounts and give the suspects the cash. After the money was exchanged, the suspects walked away and left the victims with their cars.

One man was abducted from his home as he unloaded groceries, another from his apartment complex and two men were taken from their church.
