Three charged in kidnapping

From staff reports

Three men are facing multiple charges after allegedly kidnapping a woman and her three children, ages 2,8 and 9, at gunpoint in the parking lot of The Home Depot on Jonesboro Road near Interstate 285.

Arrested were Hugo Molina, 19; Jesus Lopez Quintio, 19; and Iburra Eilberto, 24, according to a press release issued by the Forest Park Police Department.

The woman and her children were forced into a pickup truck Wednesday afternoon that one of the men drove to the end of Sierra Drive. There the men ran off with the woman's wallet. The wallet was later recovered in some nearby woods by K-9 units from the Jonesboro Police Department.

The next day the woman saw the men standing outside a gas station on Jonesboro Road and called police. During questioning by police, two of the men admitted to the incident involving the woman and her children. A later search of the men's apartment revealed a handgun just outside their apartment window.

Each of the men is charged with carjacking, robbery and four counts of kidnapping.
