(Atlanta, GA) -- Authorities in Atlanta now have eight people in custody for the gang-related kidnapping of a North Carolina man almost two weeks ago. The FBI says Quantavious Thompson was arrested late Wednesday. Frank Janssen was kidnapped from his home in Wake Forest on April 5th. He's the father of a woman who prosecuted Kevin Melton and helped send the gang member to prison for life. Melton is suspected of using a cell phone smuggled into prison to coordinate the kidnapping. Janssen was rescued by federal agents four days after being abducted.
