Investigation leads to kidnapping arrest

WICHITA FALLS - A Wichita County District Attorney investigation lead to the arrest of three people accused of kidnapping and threatening to kill someone who owed them drug money.

Justin James, Chelsea Miller and Jeremiah Gary are jailed on $50,000 in bonds and charged with kidnapping.

Police said on Thursday a man went to James' home to get methamphetamine and while there the three of them told the man that he owned a third party money.

After that, the man said James and Gary took him in a shop in the back of the house, bound his hands behind his back with zip ties and taped his mouth with duct tape. He said they then tied him to a post and left them there for hours. The man said they threatened to cut off his fingers and take his life.

After a few hours, the victim said James and Gary un-tied him and said they were taking him to his house and that he had to give them items to make up for his debt. Once at his home, the man said he gave them a tablet computer, tattoo guns and stereo equipment. Then he managed to escape and call the police.

Police later got a search warrant for James' home and police said the back shop fit the description the victim described and they also found duck tape and zip ties.

When James was arrested police reported finding meth in his pocket and Miller was found in her bedroom with several grams of meth.
