LAWNCREST - September 21, 2011

9-1-1 operators took a call around 11:00 Tuesday night from a man who claimed he was trapped in the trunk of a car. He also said his kidnappers were still inside his apartment.

Police showed up at the apartment complex, located on the 6800 block of Martins Mill Road to find three men there. They say at least one of them had a gun.

Police arrested all of them after a chase. Officers then found the victim tied up in the trunk of his Cadillac out front of the apartment complex.

They say all four men knew each other, and that this incident may have been over drugs.
