LEONARDTOWN, Md. (Aug. 26, 2008)—St. Mary's County detectives on Tuesday arrested Dajuan Antwan Stafford, 23, of Lexington Park and charged him with kidnapping, armed robbery, armed car jacking, and theft. The arrest was result of an ongoing investigation into an incident that occurred on July 12.

Once in Washington DC, two additional suspects were picked up and drugs were purchased and consumed by the suspects. The victim was then ordered to return to Lexington Park where he was ordered to drop the suspects off.

Stafford remains incarcerated at the St. Mary's County Detention Center where he was already incarcerated on an unrelated charge.
