- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Two Anchorage men are charged with kidnapping and other felonies after allegedly taking a Big Lake couple at gunpoint to withdraw cash from ATMs. State Troopers say Arthur Gray and Benjamin Lega were arrested early Sunday by a Wasilla police officer. Troopers say the men went to the female victim's home and took several items at gun point. When her boyfriend arrived, the suspects went to his nearby home, taking his ATM card. The suspects then allegedly put the couple in the car to drive to ATMs, but the card didn't work until they reached Wasilla. Gray and Lega were arrested after the vehicle was pulled over in Wasilla for faulty headlights and one of the victims told police about the situation.
