Police nab third suspect in Liberty Inn kidnapping

Posted: Updated:

According to Maj. Thomas Cribbs, of the Hinesville Police, a third suspect in the kidnapping and robbery at the Liberty Inn and Wells Fargo Tuesday has been arrested.

Police say a couple staying at the Liberty Inn Hotel in Hinesville was taken hostage Tuesday morning.

According to police, three men broke in. Two of them took the man across the street to a Wells Fargo bank and ordered him to withdraw money from his account while one held the woman at the hotel.

At the bank, the victim somehow notified the teller, who called 911 and stalled the transaction until police arrived. Two of the men were arrested at the bank. The woman was later found unharmed.

Cribbs says there may be a fourth suspect and they won't release any names until they find him.
