LUMBERTON, NC (WMBF) – Three people were taken into custody after allegedly kidnapping a person, holding the person at gunpoint through the night and then making the victim go to a Lumberton True Value store to get money.

According to a press release from the Lumberton Police Department, Stephanie Locklear, 49; Mark Johnson, 31; and David McMillian, 35, all of Lumberton, were each charged with two counts of kidnapping, one count of common law robbery and one count of extortion.

According to police, LPD officers were dispatched to the True Value store, located at 1675 Roberts Ave., on Friday for an armed robbery in progress call.
