Green is being held at the Carroll County Detention Center on $10,000 bail. Ramsey was released Thursday on $5,000 bond, and Matthews was released Wednesday on $100,000 bond, according to electronic court files.

While the three men were charged, the investigation is still continuing and additional charges may be forthcoming, according to Maj. Phil Kasten, of the Carroll County Sheriff's Office.

According to the statement of probable cause filed in the cases, the men had a Westminster man withdraw money for them from his bank after taking him from his home.

On Tuesday, investigators from the Carroll County Sheriff's Office received a call from the Department of Social Services to check on the victim, Charles Stair, of the 700 block of Old Westminster Pike, after an employee from his bank contacted social services.

Stair told the bank employee the three men had forced their way into his home Oct. 6 and made him withdraw the money, the report states.

Stair told investigators that after he retrieved the money for the men, they drove him back home where they made him drink alcoholic beverages and told him that if he told police they would kill him, the documents state.

The men were arrested Tuesday after police spotted them driving near Stair's home. The description of the vehicle was provided by Stair, according to the report.

Ramsey told investigators that he was friends with Stair and he willingly went with them to the bank to pay Ramsey for services he previously provided him with, according to the charging documents.

Matthews and Green told investigators they had no knowledge of Stair being forced to do anything against his will, according to the charging documents.
