Neal, Jones, and Stewart have all been charged with 17 felony counts that include kidnapping, assault with a firearm, grand theft, mayhem, conspiracy, and possession for sale of methamphetamine.

During that time the three defendants are thought to have driven McCrackin around LA in her own auto where she was forced to withdraw two lots of $100 and write a ransom check for $10,000 which was made out to Neal.

McCrackin, who has appeared in movies such as "Halloween Resurrection" and "3000 Miles to Graceland", was taken from a home, along with Capone.

According to the indictment, the alleged kidnappers entered McCrackin's home and pistol whipped Capone, place black hoods over their heads, drove them to Jones' home and held them for ransom. All three suspects, Keith Andre Stewart, 32; Johntae Jones, 25; and Amber Neal, 26, were in custody, authorities said, but the case was still being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department's elite Robbery-Homicide Division. They forced her to drive to multiple bank locations and demanded $10,000 for Capone's release. The indictment also says that Capone was beaten and kicked after he tried to protect McCrackin against the suspects.

According to the indictment, McCrackin and Capone were then taken to Jones' home in Compton, Calif., where the actor was held in a bathtub naked for 30 hours without food. Neal then deposited it into her own account, the indictment said. Eventually she was forced to write a cheque to Neal. McCracken called the police once she was returned home, which lead to the investigation now reported. Neal claimed the vehicle was given to her by McCrackin, the document states.

According to inmate records, Stewart was arrested that day. Her arrest was captured on video by a passerby, and posted on Twitter by a person who questioned why she was held at gunpoint with her hands raised. If convicted, Stewart and Jones face a maximum possible sentence of life with no possibility of parole, while Neal faces life. All three were scheduled to be in court for a pretrial hearing July 23.
