Armed with evidence of Goodman's alleged theft of the cocaine bricks, the dealer allegedly hired a crew to kidnap him, WRAL reported, citing a confidential informant in court documents. The crew included a former friend of Goodman, a different informant said.
Goodman's mother told WNCN she heard her son crying for help.
"I saw my son being shoved into the van," Tammie Goodman told the television station. "He was fighting with everything he had. He was saying, 'Who are you, what do you want with me?’ and then when he realized I was out there he started saying, 'Mama, go back in the house, lock the door, lock the door.'"
