Stancil, according to court records, had recently received an $80,000 life insurance check following his mother's death. McNeil told police he did not know about the check, but said he believed Stancil was "a hustler" who would have money, police said.
Either way, according to police, after Stancil would not come to them, McNeil drove with Smith and Redding to Stancil's apartment and, around 1 a.m., broke in.
The seven inhabitants - including Stancil and children ages 4, 2 and 1 - were held at gunpoint, police said, while some of the adults had duct tape placed over their mouths and were forced to strip off their clothes.
At 10:15 a.m. Monday, according to police, Stancil was released to go to a nearby PNC Bank and bring back $80,000.
Stancil told the teller of being held hostage, and the teller, who was not identified in police records, called authorities. Stancil was only allowed to withdraw $1,500, police said.
Police caught the three men after a brief foot chase. They have been charged with offenses including kidnapping, false imprisonment, and simple assault.
Attempts to reach the Stancil family Tuesday were unsuccessful.
