Two men involved in an alleged kidnapping of another man were arrested by police at a local Krystal when they showed up for the ransom.
Troy Spence Mysinger, 29, of Sabrina Dr. in Cleveland, and David Jeffery Sims, 28, are charged with extortion, aggravated kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault.
In the incident on Saturday, Leslie Burger reported that she and her boyfriend, Stephen Cross, were held at gunpoint by Sims and another man she did not know. She said they demanded $300.
She said Cross was taken away by force in a vehicle by the pair. While with police, Ms. Burger was in constant contact with the kidnappers.
Officers were waiting at the Krystal meeting point.
A silver and black Explorer pulled onto the lot followed by a second silver SUV. Sims was taken into custody in the Explorer. Mysinger was driving the second SUV and Cross was inside.
Police said they believe the hostage situation involved a drug deal gone bad.
