Midnight of Wednesday, April 9th there was an elaborate kidnapping plot which aimed at Wake Forest, North Carolina. During the bizarre, a man felt under the rescue of FBI hostage squad. This is according to the reports issued by law enforcement unit on Thursday. The FBI patrol saw five suspects who were behind the plot arrested. As a result, the captives are facing kidnapping charges as indicated by law enforcement officials during a press conference in Wake Forest. For Frank Arthur Jansen, he is receiving treatment and he seems to be in a stable condition.

After Jansen’s kidnap, it took five days for FBI squad to get track of him. However, before the rescue kidnappers had sent demands to Janssen's family asking for Kelvin Melton’s benefit. Melton is an inmate at Polk Correctional Institution in Butner, North Carolina who read an affidavit in support of a search warrant related to criminal complaints against the defendants. Up to now, nobody knows in full detail what is all about Melton’s life sentence jail. John Strong released this statement, as he is FBI North Carolina Special Agent. To make matters worse, Jansen’s daughter prosecuted Melton according to reports.

The prosecutor works as an assistant district attorney in Wake County where an affidavit details reveal how text threats reached Jansen’s wife and his daughters. In the aftermath of all these investigations, the scenario seems to underscore Strong’s description of the five kidnappers. This came out clearly, when Strong was making an official communication at the news conference. The term that Strong used to describe the kidnappers is “very dangerous people” but the truth will finally come out once investigations nears conclusion. How did Jansen’s wife have to know about text threats? They started streaming in on Monday from a phone number with Atlanta area code.

Christine says that the texts were all about her husband’s kidnapping. Looking at the texts, one of them indicated her husband is under custody of kidnappers and he is lying in the truck heading to California. Another text message threatened her, saying that if she contacted law enforcement, "we will send Janssen back to you in 6 boxes and every chance we get we will take someone in your family to Italy and torture and kill them ... we will do a drive by and gun down anybody...and throw a grenade in your window."

On April 5, a woman knocked on Janssen's door, and when he opened it, several people jumped him and used a Taser to subdue him, according to the affidavit. The attackers dragged him to their car and took off, crossing into Georgia, the document shows. Janssen's wife knew that her husband was going out for a bike ride Saturday, but when she came home that day after a shopping outing to find he would not returned, she grew alarmed, according to a news release from Wake Forest. She saw what appeared to be drops of blood outside their house, it said, and called police.
