LANCASTER COUNTY, SC - Two people were arrested in connection to a newspaper delivery man's kidnapping.

Trumane Daniel and Jeremy Thomas are being held at the Lancaster County Detention Center.


The victim, who did not want to be identified, said he stopped at the Love's Truck Stop on Sutton Road in Fort Mill about 4 a.m. Wednesday.

As he walked into the store, he said, two men asked him for a ride to Lancaster. The victim declined, but when he came out of the store and got back into his car, the men forced their way inside at gunpoint, he said.

He said they made him drive to a house in Lancaster where they robbed him.

They let him go after he told them about his young son at home.

Charges against Daniel and Thomas are pending.

Fort Mill police are working to determine exactly where the victim was taken.
