VIDEO: Ky. Officers Save Kidnapped Man at T-Stop

A convenience store clerk who had been kidnapped and stuffed into the trunk of his car was rescued by Louisville (Ky.) Police officers during a traffic stop.

Joseph Davis, Brittany Elder, and Trent Blye were taken into custody on Aug. 4, after officers heard Sean Bloemer pounding on the inside of the trunk lid. Officers pulled over the car for an expired tag, reports WAVE.

The three have been charged with wanton endangerment, complicity to kidnapping, and robbery, reports WDRB.

Sometimes it's the little things you check that produce the biggest results. Great job guys. I'm sure you saved that man's life. You are a credit to your department, and to LEO's everywhere.

Nice work fellas. Otherwise, that guy probably would've been dead in a field somewhere.

Outstanding work. You saved that man and got the bad guys off the street. I've always been impressed with Louisville police, now I'm more impressed than ever. You were on the news last night here in California - I'm guessing everyone in America heard about what you did. Awesome job!

"Officers pulled over the car for an expired tag." So the moral of this story is that if you are likely to be kidnapped, don't pay your vehicle registration. Save money and your life!
