GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Police say a Gulfport man was kidnapped and held at gunpoint for three and a half hours Wednesday at a home on John Clark Road.

The 52-year-old man said he was lured to a home on the street by 32-year-old Tiffany Jo'Lee Hill of Gulfport. The man said he was held at gunpoint at the home by two people, 39-year-old Shannon Lee Owens, and 25-year-old Jeffrey Matthew Baker.

The victim said he finally convinced Owens and Baker to take him to the bank so he could withdraw some money, in an attempt to gain his release. While at Woodforest Bank, located inside the Walmart Supercenter on Hwy 49 in Gulfport, the man told the bank teller that he was in distress and needed police.

When Gulfport Police arrived, they found the victim with Baker. Baker, Owens and Hill were all arrested and charged with kidnapping and armed robbery. After a search of the home where the man said he was being held captive, investigators also charged Owens with Generation of Hazardous Waste and Possession of Precursors.

Baker and Hill are each being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center on a $300,000 bond. Owens was held on a $400,000 bond.
