Brandon Peters was arrested at a home in Midway just before 11 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators determined that Peters dumped the stolen van he took from the kidnapping victim on Race Path Road and then stole a dump truck that he drove to Liberty County, according to the Effingham County Sheriff's Office.

Peters faces charges of aggravated assault, kidnapping, burglary and two counts of theft by taking a motor vehicle. More charges could be coming. Peters has an extensive criminal history and has served time in prison for armed robbery.

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is assisting Springfield Police in the kidnapping investigation.
