RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- One more person has been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of a North Carolina prosecutor's father, bringing the total arrest count to seven.

Federal authorities filed kidnapping charges last Wednesday against Jakym Tibbs and Quantavious Thompson, also known by the nickname Kirkwood Quan.

Thompson was taken into custody late Wednesday afternoon; he was found at a residence in Decatur, Georgia.

Tibbs was arrested early Monday morning at a home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Five other people were arrested last week following a late-night raid by the FBI on an Atlanta apartment. Rescued was Frank Arthur Janssen, a Wake Forest man whose daughter is an assistant district attorney in Wake County.

Authorities said the kidnappers made demands regarding Kelvin Melton, a high-ranking Bloods street gang member serving a life sentence in a North Carolina prison for a 2011 shooting. The victim's daughter, Colleen Janssen, an assistant district attorney in Wake County, prosecuted Melton.
