CORDOVA, Tenn. (FOX13) - Memphis Police officers arrested Brandon Benton after he carjacked and kidnapped two people, then drove them to another home where he held the pair and two others hostage.

Investigators say Benton busted into one of the Trinity Lakes apartments in Cordova and forced all four victims into a bedroom.

In an affidavit of complaint, police say Benton demanded to know where his drugs were and told them he would kill anyone who called the police.
 
Benton then ransacked the apartment in a search for the drugs. The victims later identified the suspect in a police photo line-up.

Benton was charged with one count of aggravated kidnapping, one count of carjacking, four counts of aggravated assault, four counts of aggravated robbery, and two counts of aggravated burglary.

The suspect was arrested Thursday and will be in court May 30. His bond was set at $100,00.
