They placed black hoods over their heads and drove to Jones’ home where they held the two for ransom. They allegedly stripped Capone and kept him in a bathtub for 30 hours without food. The report also states that they “inflicted great bodily injury” on Capone.
Jones and Neal are also accused of taking McCrackin’s vehicle. They forced her to drive to multiple bank locations and demanded $10,000 for Capone’s release. The two allegedly forced her to write a check to Neal, who, who deposited it into her account.
On May 4, the kidnappers took McCrackin back to her home, where she contacted authorities. The officers located the kidnappers and arrested them.
