GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) - Three men admitted to having a connection to breaking into a home and abducting one of the homeowners, police said.
A Silent Observer tip helped Grandville police officers track down the suspects six days after the crime.
Two of the suspects, from Wyoming, were contacted on Monday and questioned at Grandville police headquarters where they confessed.
Later in the day, with help from the Kent County Sheriff's Department, the third suspect was arrested near his home in Alto. He, too, then confessed to the crime.
The third suspect is an acquaintance of the victims, police said.
24 Hour News 8 confirmed the suspects are Quinton Goree, Bryan Blakely and Regan Reynolds
Two of the suspects broke into the victims' home around 4:30 a.m. Aug. 9 and held the homeowners, who are married, at knifepoint, police said. The suspects then demanded a ransom from the husband before leaving the scene with his wife, who was tied up and blindfolded, police said.
The husband called 911 as soon as the suspects fled with his wife.
The suspects then allegedly left the woman in a corn field in the 4700 block of S. Division Avenue, just inside the Allegan County line. Police said she freed herself, and then got help from a truck driver in a nearby parking lot.
