5 accused in NC abduction to have bond hearing

Posted: Updated:
WAKE FOREST, N.C. - Five people accused in the abduction of a North Carolina man last week are due in federal court in Atlanta Tuesday for a bond hearing.

Frank Arthur Janssen was taken from his home in Wake Forest, N.C., on April 5 and was rescued five days later when FBI agents raided an Atlanta apartment.

Charged with kidnapping were: 21-year-old Jenna Paulin Martin; 30-year-old Tiana Maynard; 20-year-old Jevante "Flame" Price; 21-year-old Michael "Hot" Montreal Gooden; and 29-year-old Clifton James Roberts.

Officials said they were all from the metro Atlanta area.

Authorities have said the abduction was an act of retaliation related to Janssen's daughter's prosecution of North Carolina inmate Kelvin Melton, who has also been charged in the kidnapping. Authorities have described Melton as a high-ranking member of the Bloods street gang.
